Jane Anson

Violet reflections, great clarity of colour and immediate whoosh of salinity through the redcurrant fruits. Powerful and focused with bright berry flavours, it practically defines the term crunchy fruit, then softens to show creamier black cherry purée as it relaxes in the glass. Really a very tasty d`Aiguilhe from Vignobles Comtes von Neipperg. Extremely moreish. Harvest September 17 – 28, 30% new oak. 93 points

Michael Schuster

Medium-full, great vitality, light in tannin; this is a vivid, gently sappy, ripe red-fruited middleweight, immediately attractive and with good length, too. As always, such a good beverage wine. Deliciously drinkable from the moment of bottling, and over 5–8 years. 88–90 points
