Huge red and black fruit aromas soar from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-tinged beauty. With velvety tannin, a full-bodied, opulent personality, and a knock-out finish with no hard edges, it is already impossible to resist, so enjoy it over the next decade or more. (Tasted three times.) - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This delivers a ripe up-front polished beam of blackberry and cassis fruit backed by richer notes of fig sauce cocoa powder and anise. Solid concentration and length. Drink now through 2020

80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc from the 6.25 hectare south-facing St. Emilion limestone plateau. Will be aged for 14 months in 50% new oak. Raspberry and Chambord liqueur nose with rich red fruit and turned earth on... 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc from the 6.25 hectare south-facing St. Emilion limestone plateau. Will be aged for 14 months in 50% new oak. Raspberry and Chambord liqueur nose with rich red fruit and turned earth on the palate. A big 2011 with lots of dry extract and high tannins on the finish. Needs a few years in bottle to integrate. Enjoy 2015-2025. Tasted twice.
