This tiny garagiste St.-Emilion 7.5 acres is a blend of 51% Cabernet Franc 46% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Proprietor Jean-Philippe Janoueix has fashioned a full-bodied deep concentrated wine revealing sweet notes of licorice chocolate espresso cassis and cherry. Long dense full-bodied rich and pure with enough oak and acidity to add complexity and focus it should drink well for 12-15 years. Interestingly this cuvee received a Burgundian-like treatment of malolactic in barrel after frequent pigeages in small oak fermentation tanks an unusual upbringing in Bordeaux. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Shows aromas of berries and lavender with a hint of mahogany. Full-bodied with fine tannins and bright acidity. Long and juicy. Very attractive now. Best after 2009. 980 cases made. -JS
