As I have consistently written in the past this limited production cuvee from a 12-acre site that contains a parcel of extremely old vines 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc is meant to last three decades or more. Tasting like a liqueur of rocks interwoven with creme de cassis espresso roast toasty oak and enormous levels of tannin it is neither out of balance nor astringent. It is a concentrated backward impeccably balanced St.-Emilion made with an uncompromising view of the craft of winemaking. It displays superb intensity a fabulous texture a foreboding tannic overlay incredibly ripe pure fruit and perfectly aligned acidity and tannin. Forget if for a decade and consume it between 2020-2040. 94+

Superripe aromas of blackberry blueberry licorice and crushed rock; like a liqueur of botanical herbs. Then dense sappy and superconcentrated with a powerful minerality solid acidity and a note of black pepper perking up the wine's rather clenched core of fruit. Finishes with a boatload of tannins. This almost painfully intense wine a great success for this chateau needs up to a decade of cellaring. 91(+?) points

Dark core surrounded by a bright riby rim. Very full lush front aromas. Bold florals followed by anise cherry and cassis. Great depth and purity of fruit. Rich with bold yet balanced acidity and tannins. Very long finish.
