Reviews 89-91 points Vinous "This has more depth of fruit on the nose than the regular Village Cru, featuring raspberry, cranberry and light mineral notes. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry, more substance than the regular cuvee and firm grip on the structured finish. Fine. (NM)" 89-92 points Burghound "A slightly more elegant and even spicier nose reflects notes of cool and admirably pure aromas of red cherry and raspberry along with Asian-style tea scents. There is a really lovely texture to the restrained and sophisticated middle weight flavors that offer fine intensity on the complex, sneaky long and firmly structured finish. (AM)"
