91 points "The 2005 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce shows strong pomegranate notes intermixed with red currants, earth, spice box, and underbrush. It is deep ruby with a purple tinge, shows sweet fruit, medium body, and elegance in an almost Morey St.-Denis premier cru-like style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to build on a brilliant track record of high quality wines offered to consumers at sensationally fair prices.

93 points ""Deep ruby-red. Deep, pungent aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, vanilla bean and potpourri. Sappy, palate-coating red and dark berry compote flavors are complicated by an exotic floral pastille quality and hints of clove and mocha. A distinctly rich and fleshy but energetic pinot, with the depth and structure to age. The finish hangs on with noteworthy tenacity and grip. " " Best 2013-2016

94 points "The 2012 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce, a blend of clones 115 and 777 grown in heavy clay soils, was made from tiny yields of one ton of fruit per acre. There are 1,125 cases of this stunning Pinot. Aged in 60% new French oak and the rest one-year-old barrels, the wine exhibits beautiful, sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit, a touch of graphite and subtle wood, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and an opulent, sexy personality. Consume this beautiful Pinot Noir over the next decade or more."
