About

"Night harvesting of grapes for this wine has preserved freshness and fruitiness. It's also allowed the tannins to have great play and density. Structure and beautiful, juicy black fruits have a good future ahead of them. Drink this powerful wine from 2020. -RV"

92 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Saturated ruby color. Smoke- and spice-accented dark berries, licorice, mocha and violet on the deeply perfumed nose. Sappy, fleshy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry, blueberry and fruitcake flavors that show no rough edges and turn sweeter and more lively with air. In an ample but energetic style, finishing broad, floral and very long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and youthful grip."

90 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Quite light and sleek. The firm tannins dominate a bit at the moment, but there’s plenty of cherry character in there, too. Slightly warm finish. A solid wine, but it’s trying too hard and less would have been more. Better in 2020."

Product Description:

"The origins of the name “Reine de Nuit” or “Queen of the Night” comes from the fact that the vines are picked at night in order to preserve the freshness of the grapes, as their particular rootstock is quite vigorous and pushes ripeness forward.

Deep garnet color. Bursting with ripe, black fruity notes, hints of kirsch enhanced by candied orange peel and praline. The notes expressed in the bouquet are reflected on the palate. Beautiful purity, creamy, fleshy mouth feel, and a good tannic structure with silky tannins. Pleasant to drink now, but also ages very well." - Importer
