- 2008 The Investigator Cabernet Franc. 95 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion; 92 points - Robert Parker The Wine Advocate. "Jacques Lurton has always held a torch for cabernet franc, hence the plantings, and hence this wine. Still holds exceptional crimson hue; bright red fruits, bramble, and savoury tannins are in excellent balance, oak adding to the package." Drink to 2028. James Halliday
- 2013 The Investigator Cabernet Franc. 96 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion. "A fragrant dark-berry bouquet with spice to the fore; the most striking aspect of the palate is the fine, yet firm, tannins woven throughout; most would guess an Old World origin, the fruit just part of a much bigger whole. Lovely sophisticated wine (and a perfect cork)". Drink to 2038
- 2015 The Investigator Cabernet Franc. 95 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion "Hand-picked, destemmed into demi-muids for wild fermentation, 20% skins return, maceration continued until malo-lactic ferment was complete, the wine drained and the skins and stems passed through the hand basket press, matured for 2 years on lees in demi-muids. Jacques Lurton has always loved cabernet franc, and this spicy red-fruited wine, plus its diamond dust tannins, shows why". Drink to 2041
