This is so good already. What an amazing precision of fruit for this wine with a blackberry and blueberry character as well as minerals. Full and super silky with lovely fruit. Gourmand. Tasty. I want to drink it. Always... This is so good already. What an amazing precision of fruit for this wine with a blackberry and blueberry character as well as minerals.

From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges, this wine should drink beautifully for 10 or more years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. All about low yields on this property with 25-year-old vines. A sweet nose offers blackberry liqueur which is mirrored on the full-bodied palate with a ripe and dripping glycerol core... 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. All about low yields on this property with 25-year-old vines. A sweet nose offers blackberry liqueur which is mirrored on the full-bodied palate with a ripe and dripping glycerol core along with ribbons of soy licorice cola and sweet tobacco on the back end. A zesty and spicy finish stretches with gripping tannins that will soften with a few more years of bottle age. Slightly lighter on its feet compared to the "Querre" bottling. Drink 2015 to 2020. Tasted twice.
