Wine Critic Reviews:

Although the blend will be equal measures of new and old oak, my sample came from a new barrel and so as expected has a very vanillary, opulent nose whilst the palate is very sweet and quite floral with oodles of cassis and blueberry. Good acidity cutting through all that opulence. The components suggest this will be a sensuous, almost exotic Clos des Reas. Drinking 2010-2016. Tasted January 2007.

Robert Parker Neal Martin | 93 RP-NM
Exhibits plenty of spicy oak, along with macerated cherry, plum and licorice. It's balanced, if sharp and peppery, and shows class, with a long finish. Needs time for all the components to come together. Best from 2012 through 2025.

Wine Spectator | 92 WS
A mix of Vosne spice and wood spice adds nuance to the dense dark black cherry aromas that complement the rich, concentrated, sweet and intense full-bodied flavors that are moderately structured, complex and palate staining. The dusty finish displays a solid but ripe tannic spine and this should age well over the mid-term, which is to say over the next 10 years.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
