JS90
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
A solid wine with mineral, berry and blackberry character with dark tobacco. Full and silky. Much better than 2009.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2011
Ripe and direct, with a graphite-driven beam of linzer torte and blackberry compote notes. Plenty ripe, but has nice underlying acidity for balance. Rich but pure. Should be the best vintage yet for Pascal Collotte. -J.M.

Composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it is a mid-weight, attractive example of a low-level Bordeaux that sells for a song. Enjoy it over the next several years.

Yields are 33 hls/ha. Hand harvested into small plastic crates. 13.8% alcohol. 50% new oak and 50% one year-old barrels. Aromas of crushed violet and incense are followed by melted licorice and a touch of minerality to create a taught nose. Very lush and round on the palate, this has loads of black fruits and a slight hint of truffle. A pleasure to drink now, this should show beautifully on release. Enjoy on release and over following 5-8 years. 3,800 cases produced. Stephane Derenoncourt consults.
