March 22, 2015 - Bt breathed an hour, clear ruby with restrained nose of floral. Explosive in mouth not of intensity but of the plethora of aroma, rose petal, spice and red fruit. Med acidity, tannin beginning to soften, but the floral aroma just lingers on and on. Lovely and excellent value for money.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 29, 2014 - Beautiful ruby color and wonderful nose. On the palate, still very fresh, with lots of fruit, but the tannins are still a bit harsh. This wine seems like it still needs a fair amount of time before it will realize its full potential.1 person found this helpful Comment
July 21, 2012 - youthful purity on the palate. You get that soft texture that Gaunoux does so well. Still young as the fruit is still a bit primary but very delightful drink.
November 1, 2010 - Dark garnet. Earth, red fruited nose. Excellent fruit on the palate. Tannins are soft. Very nice wine and should improve.
April 22, 2010 - Morrell Wines Cote de Beaune The Reds (Morrell Wines, NYC): Opaque red with a modest amber tinge. A little bit of thinning at the rim, but this still looks quite youthful. Beautiful nose leaping from the glass. Deep perfumed cassis with raspberry and baking spices. On the palate it's heavily fruity with big structure. Wow, this is still a baby and tastes like it was just released. For me this was the WOTN, but it needs a few more years to come into better balance.
