WE 94
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2011
(WE92-94 points) Ripe, juicy aromas, a wine that then offers sweet fruit, great flavors, a ripe wine with blackberry flavors and balanced tannins.

Polished and rich nose with dark deep fruit and dense minerality. Wonderful pure ripe fruit on the palate with a long layered texture and super velvety tannins.

Wonderful pure ripe fruit on the palate with a long layered texture and super velvety tannins. So good to drink already now, but tannins will soften over the next four years.

Delivers a gorgeous note of crème de cassis, followed by dark plum, anise, blackberry coulis and blueberry reduction notes. A glorious display of fruit, with well-embedded charcoal and graphite accents that help the finish drive on with authority. Should age wonderfully. A very strong showing for this estate. Best from 2016 through 2030. 7,500 cases made. –JM

The wine displays plenty of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, licorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerin and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don’t discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it. - Robert Parker

Youthfully medicinal aromas of black raspberry, licorice, espresso and earth. Densely packed but tight, even a bit disjointed, with serious energy to the flavors of dark berries, spicecake, menthol and fresh herbs. This rich wine's substantial acidity needs time to harmonize with its fruit. Tannins are rather suave. I found both "polished" and "slightly rustic" in my notes. I would not be surprised if this wine merited a higher score with five to seven years of bottle aging.
