Awards and/or Press Quotes
Decanter 89 Points. 'A warm vintage, and for me the most "New Worldly" of the set: thick, rich and just a little sweet, but delicious tobacco-leaf complexities too.'
Bettane & Desseauve Guide- 18/20 and best wine in its category 'A great wine in a great year, 2007 gave Bebian a lovely complexity of structure and unusual aromas. The finish is beautifully full, spicy and amazingly juicy and is bound to stay in the mind.'
