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 2011 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce is drop-dead gorgeous. Less overt than is often the case, the 2011 has a level of crystalline purity and sheer finesse that is remarkable. Nuanced, chiseled and bright throughout, the 2010 stands out for its beautifully delineated flavors, expressive inner perfume and terrific overall balance. I have a preference for the 2011 when tasted alongside the 2010. This is a great showing from the Stephen Hansel. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020" Best 2014-2020
