"Attractively ripe, fresh and softly exotic aromas are comprised of floral, spice, tea and dried white and yellow fruit scents. The ultra-seductive big-bodied flavors are quite concentrated yet surprisingly elegant while delivering first-rate persistence on the clean, dry and linear finish. This is not a typical Bâtard of imposing size and weight but rather one of refinement and even finesse, which is not a descriptor one often employs with respect to Bâtard." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 71

"Bright pale yellow. More exotic on the nose than the Combettes, offering aromas of dried fruits, mirabelle, hazelnut and smoky oak. Rich and quite ripe on the palate yet more vibrant than the nose suggests, with tangy lemon and lime flavors supported by firm underlying structure. Still quite reserved, if not a bit youthfully aggressive, and in need of time, but this wine gained steadily in freshness as it opened in the glass. Finishes with a floral pear note and excellent building length. Just one of the four barrels was new in 2016." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
