94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Shimmering ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of botanical herbs, violet, smoked meat and cracked pepper. Lithe and gently chewy in texture, offering appealingly sweet, spice-tinged dark berry, kirsch and floral pastille flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. The spice carries through an impressively long, penetrating finish that shows fine clarity and slowly emerging tannins. Drink: 2025-2033. (Dec 2022)"

94 points La Revue du Vin de France: "Casimir is an absolutely admirable wine of hedonism and balance, with a very in place mouth, concentrated but above all digestible, carried by a juicy fruit and a nice spicy touch on the finish. (2023)"
