With an unbelievable nose of licorice, tapenade, black cherry and blackcurrant liqueur, as well as full body, super-sweet tannin, and astonishing richness and length, this prodigious effort in 2005 announced the resurrection of this great terroir on the slopes near Château Pavie. Dark garnet/plum/purple, this is compelling stuff and drinkable already, but capable of lasting another 25-30 years. This beauty is not to be missed! Only 3,000 cases were produced, from a blend of 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This is very grapey with plenty of crushed blackberry and vanilla undertones and floral as well. Full-bodied soft and silky. Gushes with fruit. Hard not to drink this now but give it some time. The fruit is amazing. Such... This is very grapey with plenty of crushed blackberry and vanilla undertones and floral as well. Full-bodied soft and silky. Gushes with fruit. Hard not to drink this now but give it some time. The fruit is amazing. Such purity. Best after 2014. 3080 cases made.

Superripe vibrant nose offers cherry blueberry blackberry mocha and fruity dark chocolate. Rich and wonderfully fine-grained with excellent acidity leavening the impression of superripeness and giving cut to the intense dark berry plum and mineral flavors. Finishes very long and lush with a fine dusting of tannins and noteworthy subtlety. With its 14.5% alcohol this is a big boy but its energy and balance are impressive for such an opulent wine.
