Intense, perfumed bouquet with fruit aromas and an animal touch. Nice structure and lovely fleshiness. Good ageing potential.
Wine Spectator 87 points - A peppery aroma leads to smoky wild berry flavors shaded by spice accents in this red that firms up, with a crisp, tense finish. Best from 2017 through 2023. 150 cases imported.-BS

Vinous 87 points - (Bouchard is in charge of vineyard decisions and selects the harvest dates for ten hectares of vines owned by seven growers; 75,000 bottles produced): Good dark red. High-toned aromas of blackberry and chocolate. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with dark berry and black cherry fruit flavors lifted by a chocolate mint element. Savory, lively wine with good ripe tannins. Bouchard vinified 80% of this wine, according to Prost.
