The outstanding 2000 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a glorious nose of creosote licorice blackberry and cassis liqueur medium to full body tremendous texture and impressive ripe fruit. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending time in 80% new French oak on its lees with frequent batonnage as well as micro-oxygenation. This is serious stuff as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.This large estate with a fabulous castle on the property consists of 106 acres planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt in the background this is a property to take seriously.

Deep and dark with lots of crushed berries and meat on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and a mineral berry aftertaste. Serious wine. From the makers of the La Mondotte. Best after 2006. 8330 cases... Deep and dark with lots of crushed berries and meat on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and a mineral berry aftertaste. Serious wine.
