(The wife of Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting winemaker). The estate, which sits on the Pomerol border on what is called the Graves of St.-Emilion, has produced a wine dominated by Merlot, followed by Cabernet Franc. Absolutely extraordinary and one of their great successes, this 2005 is a sleeper of the vintage. Opaque purple, it possesses a beautiful nose of licorice, forest floor, blackberry and cassis fruit. Full-bodied and opulent, with sweet tannin, it is approachable, but with considerable upside still remaining. This wine should continue to drink well for another 15 or more years. - Robert M.

Offers mineral blackberry and currant on the nose. Full-bodied with coffee dark chocolate and berry character and a long finish. Silky and refined. Best after 2011. 3750 cases made. –JS

A clear purple and ruby core circled by a bright pink rim. The nose has a very nice complexity to it adding a darker smoky and gamy quality with gorgeous hints of aged pecorino over bold fresh red fruits along with a sweeter caramel and toasted cedar quality. In the mouth the wine is sweet and soft up front building to a nicely balanced core of fruit and tannins. Pure and rich the palate is dominated by bold red and black cherry flavors leading to a lingering spicy and vanilla cedar finish.
