3 stars "Color: bright; Nose: complex; Aromas: woody; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: medium dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: weak; Unlike any red wine I have ever encountered, really. The nose was rich with barnyard, wood scent. Surprisingly drinkable but lacked depth. Perhaps too young? Not a disappointment to others but it was to me..."

90 points "With many Champy reds, the high toast extract is just a hint. Here it dominates. While there is acidity and a bitter cherry flavor, it is hard to discern through the barrier of wood. Maybe two or three years will help, but it is a question. R.V. (12/31/2010) — 87 " Best 2013-2018
