Round and velvety, with chocolate, spice and coffee. Full body, and velvety.

Still a touch chunky, with the grippy edge leading the way for a solid core of boysenberry, blueberry and blackberry fruit. There's spice and anise buried on the finish, with nicely integrated acidity, though this does show the vintage's alcoholic power. -J.M.

There is a slight over-ripeness coming through on the nose, a prune-like accent that is not as obvious as others, but might suggest that it could have been picked 1-2 days earlier. The palate is medium-bodied with a good firm structure, notes of blackberry, dark cherry and a touch of black olive. I like the finish much more than the nose, demonstrating good delineation and poise.

85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Located by Cheval Blanc and Figeac. On the nose, raspberry, crushed rock and flowers develop, followed by vanilla and freshly poured concrete.

On the nose, raspberry, crushed rock and flowers develop, followed by vanilla and freshly poured concrete. The palate is medium to full bodied with a creamy, lingering texture. Tannins seem integrated and balanced, and the wine offers a wonderfully complex finish. Drink after 2018. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
