Wine Advocate (Galloni): 91 "A deeply scented, perfumed wine, the 2011 Pinot Noir impresses for its nuanced personality and sheer detail. Dark cherry notes lead to plums, cloves, menthol and crushed rocks. The 2011 is all about delineation, nuance and freshness, all qualities that are very much present in the glass. This is a terrific first effort from Champs de Reves. These vines were only planted in 2006. It will be fascinating to see what develops here in the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. Winemaker Eric Johannsen has done a fabulous job with this inaugural release from Champs de Reves, Kendall-Jackson’s vineyard in Anderson Valley."
