91 points "Vivid red. Aromas of fresh red fruits, sassafras and rose, with a spicy topnote. Offers lively, penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and picks up a smoky nuance with air. Closes nervy and long, with resonating spiciness and florality. 91 points By Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul 12" Best 2015-2020

92 points "The Le Cadeau 2010 Pinot Noir Rocheux spent 15 months in one-third new barrels, and delivers a pronounced blue and black fruit sweetness I associate especially with the Dijon clone 777 that made up half of its eventual blend (the rest being Pommard selection that almost certainly is responsible – perhaps along with the rocky site itself – for the results being anything but superficially fruity and shallow). Subtle notes of nutmeg and vanilla along with a satisfying savor of pan drippings and generally animal fat savor add allure to the rich fruit on a satiny palate, and this finishes with soothing and persistently, mouthwateringly seductive richness. I expect one will want to follow it for at least ten or twelve years. by David Schildknecht, Issue #202, August 2012" Best 2015-2020
