This was the breakthrough vintage for this fabulous terroir that had been under-exploited for so many years. A collaboration between Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt this medium to full-bodied pure blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc reveals aromas reminiscent of a liqueur of crushed rocks black currants and raspberries. The tannins are still present and the wine is firmer than I expected but it is loaded. Made in a distinctive singular elegant style it will be even better in 5-6 years and should last for two decades thereafter - longer than I originally predicted. 95+

Vibrant aromas of blackberry cassis violet espresso and licorice along with spice mint and mineral nuances. Spicy bright and already expressive in the mouth with lush dark berry and floral flavors complicated by a truffley note. The substantial tannins spread out to coat the teeth. This wine extroverted personality suggests that it will offer considerable early appeal. A superb showing.

Impressive fruit in this wine with crushed plums and spices. Full- to medium-bodied with super silky tannins and a long caressing finish. A refined and beautiful wine. Best after 2008. -JS
