95 Points & "Editor's Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2011 vintage):
"It’s hard to believe that this fabulous Pinot is Failla’s least expensive selection; what a great indication of his 2011s yet to come and of the vintage in general. It’s bone dry and rich in raspberry flavor, with brisk acidity, firm minerality and a perfectly applied jacket of smoky oak. Elegant, pure and savory, it’s just beautiful to drink now." — (12/31/2012)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Reuling is humming its way toward continued greatness in working with its own coveted fruit, crafting a coming-together of earthy fruit and lush texture. This vintage is dark ruby in color, classic in complex forest floor and wild strawberry layered over flowery perfume and a streak of spice. The imprint of oak and girth is still evolving, and the structure is there to cellar from 2017–2021." - Virginie Boone (9/1/2014)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
A wine that come all from estate vineyards (mostly Plan de Dieu and Cairanne) since 2008, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions is mostly Grenache and Syrah, yet also includes a tiny amount of Clairette and other permitted varieties. It exhibits knockout notes of dark fruits, chocolate, smoked meats and pepper. This is followed by a ripe, textured and beautifully pure effort that has both richness and freshness. Drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. (January 2015)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Amancaya Gran Reserva, their second wine named after a flower found in the Alpes mountains in Argentina, which aims at a feminine, elegant profile, is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon and shows a classical profile of tobacco, cedar wood, balsam and perfectly ripe fruit. It has great balance and integration of fruit, oak and acidity, it has no edges and drinks beautifully now, but has the stuffing to last well. Drink 2014-2019." - Luis Gutierrez (Apr 2014)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a big, ripe, oaky Pinot Noir. Considering how cold the vintage was, it was quite an achievement to produce such powerful raspberry, cherry and plum fruit flavors. The wine is dry, elegantly tailored and vibrant in acidity, and should peak by 2017." - S.H. (11/1/2013)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(30% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Captivating, high-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate, violet, rose petal and mocha. Juicy and tightly wound, with fresh acidity energizing the middle palate but keeping the wine's dark berry flavors restrained today. There's a lightly peppery quality that gives away the vintage, but this highly aromatic wine is a big success for the year and very well made." - Stephen Tanzer (May 2014)

93 Points -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Vivid ruby. Heady scents of candied cherry, raspberry preserves, anise and potpourri. Shows a darker profile in the mouth, offering palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a strong floral quality. Picks up smokiness with air and finishes with superb focus and length and youthful tannic grip. No question that this is one of the best wines I tasted from Gigondas this year." - Josh Raynolds (Jan/Feb 14)

a ruby red in color with purple highlights, grapey in aroma with floral (roses) and spicy notes from the aging in oak, full and balanced in flavor. A very versatile wine, its roundness and suppleness make it an excellent match with a full range of dishes as, for example, the traditional fried meats and vegetables and the pot-au-feu of Piedmont. It is best drunk at a temperature of 16° centigrade (60° Fahrenheit).
