A complex set of aromas ranging from coffee to forest floor herbs licorice blackberries cassis and cherries all seem to jump from the glass and then are joined by a hint of charcoal as well camphor. This is an impressive full-bodied dense concentrated wine that is more up-front and approachable than the 2005 was at a similar stage but it is remarkably expressive full-bodied dense and capable of lasting 20-25 years.

A solid wine with blueberry minerals and spice character. Solid core of ripe juicy fruit and firm silky tannins with a fruity finish. Yet reserved and refined. Try it in 2017.

Superripe almost candied aromas of maraschino cherry woodsmoke and coffee. Sweet plush and impressively deep with intense penetrating dark cherry and licorice flavors that quickly shut down in the glass. Seriously structured and tannic wine especially for merlot and very long on the aftertaste. I'd forget about this for at least five years; by that point my original rating may look conservative. An outstanding vintage for this chateau.

This has a distinctly burly edge that stands out from the pack with dense slightly chunky blueberry black Mission fig and blackberry fruit flavors backed by bittersweet cocoa and anise. Maybe a slight gamble for the chewiness to subside though there is character to this. Best from 2013 through 2023. -JM

Barely opaque with a broad pale purple rim the closed nose shows subtle hints of cherry. The wine shows much more expression on the palate as ripe dark fruit flavors dominate the core. The fruit persists through to the backpalate supplemented by bittersweet chocolate to accompany the ultra-fine tannins. The finish is again fruit-filled and quite long with additional notes of spice box. Approachable now look for this wine to provide exciting drinking over the next 20 years.
