86 points "Ripe raspberry and cherry fruit are lovingly presented in an easy-going, medium-bodied, supple format. Enjoy this 1997 over the next 5-6 years. It will have many admirers because of its directness and elegance. This reasonably-priced wine emerges from the famed oenologist, Michel Rolland, as this is the property where he and his equally talented oenologist wife, Dany Rolland, reside." Best 2000-2006
