94 points "The powerful, earthy 2008 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard exhibits more mossy, forest floor, mushroomy notes intermixed with blue and black fruits as well as hints of camphor and smoky barbecued meats. This big, rich, forebodingly intense Pinot requires several years of bottle age, and should last for 10-12 years. (94-96)." Best -2022

93 points " Full medium red, less bright than the Rueling. More aromatic nose offers blue fruits and violet. Fat, sweet and broad, with very ripe flavors of blueberry liqueur, black tea and earth. I wanted a bit more verve and floral lift but this very long wine shows better fruit sweetness on the very long finish than the Rueling. Aubert did an extended maceration on the skins in 2008 (up to 45 days), which he believes has given his wines more gras But I wonder if this added textural richness has come at the expense of some verve. Both of these wines are aged in 100% new oak, mostly barrels from Fran c ois Freres, Remond and Damy."
