Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
A bright, lively, floral style, with lots of raspberry and cherry fruit. A floral edge hangs on through the long, licorice-filled finish. -J.M.

Deep in color, with oak, licorice, floral, chocolate and dark berry scents pairs well with the wines round textures and sweet black cherry finish.

This property, which has been on a qualitative roll, is one of the largest estates in Fronsac, and their wines are both easily found and fairly priced. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2010 cuts a larger, richer, more concentrated swath than usual without losing its elegant, rich, intensely fruity, lush style. A hedonist's dream, it is a heady red to enjoy over the next 6-10 years.

Aged a year in a combination of 1/3 new oak, 1/3 one year-old oak and 1/3 two year-old oak barrels. The nose exhibits soy, crushed blackberry and currant, followed by aromas of crushed rock. Candied cassis, olive and juicy licorice coat the mid-palate with cleansing acidity and a medium grip. Tannins are a bit angular and the finish is elegantly long. Drink 2016 to 2025.
