« The Spirit of lightness seeked in this vintage will seduce all water-shout and fresh wines enthousiasts. Little tanins, a spontaneous fruit on the blackcurrant and the raspberry gives it an aerial dimension, quite rare for the region.» Gault-Millau

« Remarquable, that's what this wine is thanks to its balance between its fruit and woodiness. Its colour is of dark cherry which reveals the extraction and the barrels maturing. The nose, at first dominated by fruits and prunes, is then marked by notes of roasting which softly come to take over, confirm these impressions. The mouth is ample and lingering, with particularly fine tannins and a good sugariness. »
Guide Hachette 2007

« Beautiful rich aromatic quality annoucing black fruits flavors (blackberry), we sense the terroir. We perform here with fluidity, even femininity with those milky touches. Round and delicate. »

« In the Lead of the Premiers Grands Vins Classés.Superb Cahors Cuvée X 2007...a complex nose where redcurrant and humus are dominating, associating power and fineness, a fleshy wine, with silky yet dense tannins, it deserves a rich cuisine »
Millésimes 2011

« Olfactory expressions of plants and fruits preceeding a richly gifted start as it reaches the palate. We savour violet and blackberry then candied notes. As Gourmet as you wish ! »
