WINE ADVOCATE (88-90 points)
Another sleeper of the vintage, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2012 reveals sweet cranberry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of spring flowers, earth and subtle wood. Supple, fruity, medium-bodied and well-made, this beauty can be drunk over the next decade. Poujeaux has been on a hot streak following the change of ownership (the Cuvelier family now owns this property). – Robert M. Parker, Jr, The Wine Advocate
WINE SPECTATOR (89 points)
A pretty wine, with floral notes out front followed by enticing plum and cherry compote accents. Light savory and tobacco hints gild the finish. Best from 2019 through 2025.
