A large-scale red, which bears the name of the eagle owls, discreet hosts of the small plot. The wine, rich and aristocratic, presents magnificent fruit enhanced by well-marked spices, coated with well-controlled woodiness. The finish will improve after two or three years of aging. 

92/100 - Medium-bodied, fresh and precise with good acidity, neat tannins, decent concentration and a smoky touch over the forest berry fruits that brings some complexity. Really quite zesty acidity coupled with strict tannins suggest that after a few years this will be a lovely wine. The oak work is robust. 2,300 bottles produced. - Matt Walls, Decanter

17/20 - Tasted blind. Creamy notes on the nose with candied violets and earthy notes. A rich dense palate with dark fruits, spice, very fine tannins and dominant oak. Has some cola notes and richness. Quite introverted at the moment but appealing depth and density. - Alistair Cooper MW,
