One of only eight reds in "Recommended wines under £10", by Jancis Robinson MW, FT Weekend Magazine, October 31st 2020

"A Ginestet bottling at a good price and nicely packaged. The Lafon family farm vines at Coubeyrac in Entre-Deux-Mers.
Mid ruby. Attractive savoury quality and almost Graves-like freshness with no shortage of fruit and a dry, remarkably persistent finish for the price. For food.Drink 2020-2024 VGV, 16/20", Jancis Robinson,, 21st October 2020

This stood out in a blind tasting of reasonably priced 2018s: for a clean, red-fruited scent; generous fruit accented with cinnamon; a pleasing softness; decent aromatics; and just a little support. Excellent value. Now-2022
