Allen Meadows - Burghound:
"Here the impressively pure nose speaks of extract of red currant together with notes of damp earth, spice and liquid stone. On the palate this is lacier and more refined than is typical with intensely mineral-driven flavors yet to be sure there is still some of the sleek muscularity one expects to find in a textbook Champans. I very much like the palpable sense of underlying tension though it's worth pointing out that this presently very tight and will need ample cellar time to completely unwind."
