"An enticing if weighty mouthful, rich and deeply flavored, anchored by tiers of blackberry, blueberry, wild berry, cherry and raspberry flavors. Round and smooth on the palate. Long finish."
"Ruby red in colour. On the nose intense aromas of cinnamon, black plum and cedar dominate with just a hint of orange blossum. In the mouth red cherry, raspberry and a touch of allspice are all in evidence. A well integrated oak backbone is backed-up by fresh acidity together with soft, well-rounded tannins with together impart excellent structure and length."
"This Monkey Wine is named for the valley it is grown in Baden. Light and soft, just perfect with pork tenderloins, picnics, or as a cocktail. The monkey on the bottle is 3D, and its arms reaches all the way around the bottle."
"91 Wine Spectator Dark and full of sweet blackberry, cassis and vanilla flavors, this polished red is round and harmonious. The tannins are there, but well-integrated, and a chocolate accent graces the aftertaste. Drink now through 2018."
"90 Points- Wine Advocate. Concentrates lightly-cooked dark cherry and plum, but also meat stock and bitter-sweet herbs. Plush on the palate, and with its tannic structure well-covered by rich layers of fruit and meat, this finishes with persistent concentration."
"90 Points- Stephen Tanzer. Complex nose melds wild berries, smoked meat, minerals and animal fur. Supple and sweet but a bit youthfully tight; there's lovely texture and balance here but the wine is not yet expressing itself. Less powerful than the old-vines bottling but perhaps longer. Today this finishes tight and a bit medicinal, with some oak showing."
"Good deep red. Ripe black cherry and smoke on the nose. A step up in sweetness and lushness, with lovely purity and impressive concentration to the flavors of black cherry, dark raspberry and smoke. This is downright silky for the year. Finishes very long and broad, with fine tannins and impressive aromatic persistence. This two-hectare holding produced the best-looking grapes in 2006, noted Boillot, who said that little sorting was required here. But due to millerandage, he'll have just 20 barrelsin 2006, vs. a normal 40 or 42. For years, this has been one of my go-to wines in restaurants in Burgundy. 89-92"
"A beauty, pure, sleek and supple, featuring red cherry, raspberry, floral and mineral aromas and flavors. Juicy and impeccably balanced, this red has grip, ending in a long, kaleidoscopic finish."
"An elegant, silky red, yet not without structure. Cherry and red berry flavors are the main themes, with spice and mineral playing supporting roles, followed by a fine, lingering finish. Best from 2011 through 2024."
"This soft and fruity red wine evokes the scent of berries. This wine will partner with red meats, game and cheeses. Expansive mouthfeel and finish. 100% of the grapes for Domaine Chene wines are grown on their 30 hectare estate."
