Quote – “Still young and closed up, this wine is all about the future. It has rich fruits contrasted with ripe acidity and is given a push by the wood-ageing flavour. It will need some time, so don't drink this generous wine until 2017” - about vintage of 2011 (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)

Quote – “A silky and complex, classic old world wine. Ripe enough to compete with a Californian wine but with plenty of earthiness to set itself aside. Dried sour cherries, cassis, baked plum balanced by a dried dill, cinnamon spice and toasted coconut” - about vintage of 2015 (Ultimate Wine Challenge 2017, USA)
