This 7500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc is one of the strongest wines of the vintage. A deep blue/purple hue is accompanied by classic aromas of smoky blueberries and blackberries as well as incense and floral notes in the background. A beautiful texture opulence flamboyance and purity characterize this stunningly deep full-bodied effort another great success from proprietor Hubert de Bouard. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022.

Plush, polished, sensuous and richly textured, the fruit is ripe, sweet and shows both its black and red sides. Full bodied, with depth and concentration, this is already showing well, and is only going to get better from here.

Full of dark fruits and sweet tobacco character. Full-bodied, with super fine, silky tannins and a long finish. Give it another three years.

Tasted at Farr Vintners’ vertical from ex-chateau magnum. The 2004 has a very fragrant, more floral bouquet than the 2003 with fine definition and clarity, notes of wild strawberry and raspberry lifting from the glass with a hint of rose petal. The oak is very well integrated. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, just a little hardness at the moment, suggesting that this needs another one or two years to mellow. It is a little foursquare towards the graceful finish but decent length. Salty tang on the aftertaste. Very fine indeed for the vintage.

Dark ruby in color with coffee bean meat and berry aromas. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a medium finish. I love the texture. Balanced and stylish. Best after 2010. 8330 cases made. –JS

Wild aromas of plum, redcurrant, game, underbrush and flowers; hints of liqueur-like superripeness. Supple and suave but also rich and large-scaled; seriously concentrated and deep for the vintage but less sweet than the 2005. This boasts lovely texture and broad, ripe tannins but I find more intensity and incipient complexity-not to mention purity and lift-in the young 2006. -- Stephen Tanzer
