88 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2004
($45) Medium red. Smoke and meat on the nose, with autumnal notes of underbrush and mushroom. Fatter, richer and sweeter than the Fremiets, with lovely mid-palate shape. Finishes with dusty, even, sweeter tannins. Showing very well today, which came as a shock to winemaker Renaud de Villette, who said the 2001s were very hard, and difficult to taste, following the February bottling. But then this vineyard was less affected by hail than the Fremiets.
