Offers both guts and charm with a very solid core of plum cake fig and cassis laced with hints of ganache and roasted spice notes. There's a nice mouthfilling feel through the finish with more oomph and drive than most. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

The best of these is the 5-hectare plot which surrounds the church in Pomerol. Average vine age is 35 years. Medium purple-garnet hue. The muted nose reveals some clay and red fruit aromas. The entry and midpalate are juicy with a harmonious blend of red fruit tapenade and black licorice flavors. Good structure. The succulent core is energized by wonderful minerality and acidity making for a balanced finish. This is tempting to enjoy on release but will fare well after 10-15 years in bottle. Serious effort. Part of the Moueix stable of wines.

Aromas of blueberries chocolate and blackberries follow through to a full to medium body with firm tannins and a pleasing finish. Juicy.

This well-known estate, long owned by the Jean-Pierre Moueix family, has been making strides over recent vintages to hopefully get back to the legendary quality level of vintages in the late forties, fifties, and early sixties. The 2011 possesses a healthy dark ruby/plum color, a broad, expansive mouthfeel, and plenty of jammy cherry, spice, earth and truffle notes. Rich, medium-bodied, pure and front end-loaded, this seductive effort can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
