Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"A soft, plush style, with mulled plum and fig notes up front, followed by subtle tobacco, cocoa, roasted sage and charcoal hints that fill in on the finish. There’s sneaky grip too, with a nice twang of iron at the very end. Drink now through 2017."
90 Points

"Sweet red and black currant fruit combined with forest floor and floral notes make for an enticing aromatic display. Never a blockbuster, Dassault tends to be a supple, elegant, fruit-filled wine that is very satisfying on a hedonistic level. The 2008 fulfills all of those requirements. It displays lovely balance, soft tannins, and good freshness as well as liveliness in its medium-bodied, richly fruity personality. Consume it over the next 10-15 years. Range: 88-90"
