Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, May 2011
A strong effort the 2008 was made from tiny yields of 28.5 hectoliters per hectare and attained 14% natural alcohol. It reveals sweet licorice black currant and blackberry fruit notes intermixed with truffle and asphalt... A strong effort the 2008 was made from tiny yields of 28.5 hectoliters per hectare and attained 14% natural alcohol. It reveals sweet licorice black currant and blackberry fruit notes intermixed with truffle and asphalt characteristics in its pure rich opulent full-bodied personality. One of the finest St.-Emilions of the vintage it is far more accessible than the 2010 and should continue to drink well for 15-20 years.

Big ripe and rich with smoky bacon flavors as well as sweet tannins. The wine feels generous the tannins cushioned. R.V.

Juicy with a tasty mix of dark plum crushed fig and blackberry fruit followed by licorice black tea and maduro tobacco. The long finish lets it all hang together nicely. Drink now through 2015. 3330 cases made. -JM

Bright red-ruby. Crushed blueberry violet and licorice on the perfumed nose. Pliant supple and sweet with a very smooth texture if not exceptional complexity to the flavors of black fruits and chocolate. No rough edges... Bright red-ruby. Crushed blueberry violet and licorice on the perfumed nose. Pliant supple and sweet with a very smooth texture if not exceptional complexity to the flavors of black fruits and chocolate. No rough edges here. Finishes with lush chocolatey tannins and lingering aromatic perfume.
