Splendid elegance with red berries and tannins well integrated. Better than Cascina cucco barolo 07

Favourite wine! Astounding nose full of blackberries. Very easy drinking, sumptous. Very pleasant and good value for money. Beware of airing too much.

Nice tones of blackcurrant and tobacco/leather. Not very complex but good value for money from a vintage when most wine is good.

Balanced and complex offering. Lots of red fruit but still a steady grip and matching acidity. Wonderfully crafted product.

Very fine nose with hints of mushroom and cream. Subtle and fresh taste. Quite balanced and long. A very good effort for its price. Recommended.

Fresh and with average mousse. A little sticky taste. A little bland but still enjoyable. Not a top BdB.

Somewhat raw, unfinished nose with lots of fruit. But this is a great effort by Andrea. It is mouthwatering with plenty of fruit, yet with enough acid to make it balanced and complex. Very drinkable and likeable but still with the genuine character of Sangiovese. Recomended!

Very fine nose with complex notes and almost carnivorous hints. Less developed taste albeit still very complex and balanced. A very affordable example of Jadot wine making.

Always like the offerings of Diebolt Vallois. However this bottle as slightly disapppointing in comparison with previous ones. Still with fresh acidity but not as balanced and complex as other bottles of the same vintage. May have peaked.

Refreshing but complex and body. Lots of red fruit, some mineral notes

Robust and in same style as other Pegau. Quite good value for money, although lacking a bit of structure found in other similarly priced offerings.

Very solid wine with wonderful structure. Most vintages are high class, 2012 being no exception. Great value.

Easy to drink with plenty of fruit, relatively well balanced. Somewhat spicy reminding about southern Rhone.

Great champagne with astounding balance between freshness and complexity given the Pinot noir dominance. Absolutely mouthwatering.

Despite airing and decanting still murky and tight bouquet. Rather dull despite some hints of elegance.
