88-91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013
Deep red-ruby with purple highlights. Complex aromas of cassis, violet and spices, complemented by sweet oak and lifted by a peppery menthol nuance. Not a fleshy wine but juicy, firm and aromatic, with lovely balancing acidity enlivening the clean blueberry and blackcurrant flavors. Fiinishes with sweet tannins and very good length and balance. I really like this wine's light touch, especially compared to its more "important" sibling Branon, which struck me as overextracted for such a light vintage.
