This may be the biggest richest most intensely concentrated wine of the vintage in St.-Emilion (much like it was in 2000). Sadly there are only 900 cases of this unfined/unfiltered 85% Merlot / 15% Cabernet Sauvignon... This may be the biggest richest most intensely concentrated wine of the vintage in St.-Emilion (much like it was in 2000). Sadly there are only 900 cases of this unfined/unfiltered 85% Merlot / 15% Cabernet Sauvignon blend (made from yields of 23 hectoliters per hectare) most of which comes from 60-80-year old vines. Made in a huge nectar of the vine-like style it is incredibly pure and rich but is very uncompromising. It appears to be a modern day version of a wine made in the 1800s. Enormously concentrated massive on the palate with excruciatingly high levels of tannin but also high levels of extract it is meant for patient connoisseurs. It will have a fascinating evolution lasting 30-40 years but being conservative I will just say drink it between 2010-2025. In all respects this admirable effort is a throwback to days long gone.
