Nick Onischuk Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The BEL ECHO TERROIR GREYWACKE CLOS HENRI PINOT NOIR 2010 is classic pinot. Aromas of cherry and earthy tones dominate with a hint of rasberry and spice. A medium to long finish of sour cherry on the tongue. Not my favourite pinot, but certainly a quality bottle. 88/100 - Tasted August 13,2013

I liked it warmer then colder. Had with curry from Yamé: ginger chicken and coconut curry chicken
Gold Medal winner at the 2012 Royal Easter Show Wine Awards. Terroir enthusiasts will dig this wine’s expression of Greywacke sandstone soil. Deep ruby colour with pure cherry and raspberry fruit backed by warm spice and earth notes. Zippy acidity brings a nice sour-cherry tang to the palate. This is precisely what New World Pinot crafted in the Burgundian model should be. Well-made wine at an exceptional price. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.
