93 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "Donatsch's 2019 Pinot Noir Passion is deep, pure, fresh and tangy on the dark and toasty, very characterful but elegant and cherry-charming nose that indicates perfect ripeness and coolish precision of coolish ripened fruit (forest berries from red to black) along with delicate pepper notes. Full-bodied, round and intense on the palate, this is a dense, silky-textured, finessed and elegant, quite substantial but most of all refreshing and highly stimulating Graubünden Pinot with concentrated, densely textured fruit structured by fine but firm tannins. The finish is intense, pure and clear and reveals good power, grip and tension. This is an impressive and very sustainable Pinot Noir with excellent aging potential, though it also drinks perfectly well today, if decanted for a day or two. Honestly, the 2019 is my favorite Passion Pinot out of the six I tasted for this report (2008, 2009, 2010, 2018, 2019 and 2020) since it transports the coolish terroir of the Bündner Herrschaft as well as the vintage perfectly well. 13.5% stated alcohol. Diam cork. Tasted in January 2022. Drink: 2022-2036. (Mar 2022)"

92 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "You could easily mistake this elegant and self-confidently dry Swiss pinot noir for a young wine from a cooler corner of Burgundy, such as Savigny-Les-Beaune. I love the bright red-berry and cherry fruit up front and the subtle, earthy nuances at the long, precise finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2024. (8/9/22)"
