Inviting deep aromas of blackcurrant and ripe plum with a hint of licorice. Very appealing sweet black and red fruit flavors on the palate; shows a stiffer tannic spine than Haut Batailley from the same owner but the tannins are also smoother and riper. Finishes pleasantly long with an obvious cinnamon touch and very good balance. Another wine that may have been more successful in '08 than in either '06 or '07. -Ian D'Agata

The nose is driven by minerals clearly some graphite and lead mixing with notes of red berries cherry and tobacco. Smooth and sweet entry with nice balance and just the right amount of tannin on the lingering finish.
