A blend of 60% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, this has a ripe, rounded, velvety smooth bouquet that has slightly better delineation than the Clementin du Pape Clement tasted alongside. The palate is full-bodied with dense tannins but good acidity. Tightly coiled but well defined towards the finish. Outstanding!

A solid core of currants and coffee, with hints of new wood. Full and velvety, with a lovely texture and medium finish. Better than 2009.

2010: This blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc tends to be a very good value from empire builder Bernard Magrez.

The dark ruby-hued 2010 offers up hints of white chocolate, herbs and berry fruit. Fresh with sweet tannin as well as good depth, it should drink well for 7-8 years.

Aged for 18 months in 50% new oak and 50% one year. Referred to as the `Pearl of the Medoc,' the vineyard is located on the famous Saint Christoly du Medoc gravel outcrop of gravel over clay. The nose offers perfumed black and blue fruit with Asian spice and tarry phenolics - tar, fresh pavement and turned earth. Primary blackberry and boysenberry fill the mouth with crushed earth and pulverized rocks on the silky rich glycerol palate. Broad-shouldered, round tannins match the ultra ripe fruit nicely. Tasted twice.
