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.

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.

Still very compact on the finish but with excellent energy, this stands... This is well-stuffed, with juicy bramble, cassis bush, blackberry paste and plum sauce flavors that are nicely backlit by floral and mineral notes. Still very compact on the finish but with excellent energy, this stands out from the pack, showing more briar than chalk in the structure. A mouthwatering, vivacious wine that will stretch out nicely with some extended cellaring.—Larcis Ducasse non-blind vertical (December 2012). Best from 2020 through 2030.
