Corinna Horton rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

A heavy bottle and stunningly simple label, pays homage to the truly great wine it embraces. Adjectives such as "spectacular" spring to mind. The combination of merlot, syrah, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc is simply outstanding.

The Quatrain could pass for a Chilean wine, with it's robust tannins and multi-layered complexity. It starts with red fruits, but as it warms it becomes completely something else. Herbaceous and earthy with undertones of butterscotch and a hell of a kick at 14%. (As good as French wines three times the price.)
