Although not quite the blockbuster I expected from the barrel samples I tasted this is nevertheless an outstanding effort from a vineyard situated next to the garagiste superstar Le Pin. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sumptuous aromas of truffles chocolate kirsch fig coffee and toasty oak. Deep and full-bodied with a broad savory mouthfeel and a layered finish this beauty will provide pleasure over the next 15-20 years. Kudos to Jean-Philippe Janoueix!

Sweet berry and milk chocolate aromas lead to a full body with a solid core of ripe berries and a velvety texture. There's a pretty structure to this. Best after 2011. 1500 cases made. -JS

The nose is very complex with a classic Right Bank Bordeaux expression that is unmistakable. Black cherry and blackberry fruit lifts from the glass with a complex array of tertiary components making this wine a classic Pomerol. Tobacco and cigar box intermingle with savory mocha chocolate and coffee. Beneath are notes of crushed earth and fresh pavement that adds an extra dimension to the nose of this terrific wine. The palate has sweet black cherry and blackberry fruit that is consistent with the nose. This is a medium to full bodied wine that reminds me of the great early drinking '02 vintage that was so complex at an early stage in its development. The mid-palate opens up nicely and should add weight as the tannins resolve and lengthen. The wine is a steal at this price and will provide enjoyment for 10 to 15 years easily.
