Long and focused with ripe finely textured tannins. Already very enjoyable to drink, but tannins will integrate further over the next two years.

The yields in 2010 were virtually nothing – a mere 12 hectoliters per hectare – and the wine, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is a big, powerful, full-bodied, rich wine that in many ways reflects the generous cuisine of this famous bistro. Full-bodied, with a dense opaque/purple color and notes of creosote, truffle, blackberry and black raspberry, the wine also has a floral note and hints of crushed rock, giving it a certain minerality. The precision of the 2010 is there because of good acidity. Forget this dense, back-strapping, intense wine for 4-5 years and drink it over the following two decades. It tips the scales at 14.7 % natural alcohol. - Robert Parker

Inviting aromas of black raspberry, licorice, violet and bitter chocolate. Dense, chewy and very concentrated, with surprisingly sound acidity giving energy and definition to the juicy flavors of dark raspberry, menthol, licorice and flowers. With aeration, notes of redder fruits and earth emerge, along with a mineral element. Finishes with serious but ripe, dusty tannins and lovely floral lift. This impressive wine has the balance and stuffing to age for 15 or 20 years.

This has a thick texture, with layers of mocha and cocoa holding sway over extracted boysenberry and blackberry fruit.

This has a thick texture, with layers of mocha and cocoa holding sway over extracted boysenberry and blackberry fruit. The dark, plum skin-framed finish relies on power more than guile, with more breadth than length in the end. Best from 2014 through 2018. – JM
