94, Wine Spectator:
"Very ripe, with lush plum sauce, blackberry confiture and linzer torte flavors all rolled together, with additional sweet tobacco, macerated olive and white pepper notes cutting through the finish. A long sanguine edge lingers. Shows great range and intensity. Best from 2013 through 2021."
92, Wine Enthusiast:
"Firmly in the style of the vintage, this is dense, full bodied Cornas, with plenty of fruit. Intense plum, coffee and black olive notes dominate, while the tannins are ripe and plush. Believe it or not, this is actually drinkable now, yet should age easily through at least 2025."
