Made under the guidance of Hubert du Bouard this blend of primarily Merlot and a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc (around 9%) from the limestone soils on the hillsides of St.-Emilion exhibits a dense purple color lots of chalky minerality and a big sweet perfume of boysenberries blackberries licorice and burning embers. It is full-bodied and opulent with an abundance of fruit glycerin power and silkiness. Some tannins lurking in the finish suggest a half dozen years of cellaring will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Blackberry with spices such as nutmeg and cloves follow through to a full body and fine tannins with sweet fruit. Balanced and delicious. Best in 2017.
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2012
Plush with linzer and casis notes harnessed by a plum skin frame while sweet spice and toasted applewood notes flesh out the finish. Drink now through 2019.
