Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light ruby Pinot with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, and new leather. The taste is bright raspberry with great acidity and the tiniest hint of tannins. There's a medium-short berry finish. I had this paired with barbecued pork-chops, but the wine was a bit light for that, although still quite tasty. A better pairing would have been herb-rubbed port, or soft to medium cheese.
Guillaume rated this wine as 85/100
Christian Joly rated this wine as 50/100 with the following review:

Trop léger
This dry, light and fruity red displays a simple and medium nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, smooth tannins, and slender texture precede a medium finish.
