Dark and nicely layered with crunchy acidity in between the notes of raspberry cherry pit plum sauce and savory herb. The long chalk-filled finish has a whiff of smoke. A great turnaround over the last few years at this... Dark and nicely layered with crunchy acidity in between the notes of raspberry cherry pit plum sauce and savory herb. The long chalk-filled finish has a whiff of smoke. A great turnaround over the last few years at this estate. -J.M.

This is soft and velvety with blueberry and blackberry aromas. Full body with round tannins and a long finish. A rich and almost jammy wine. Plenty going on here! 2009 was excellent as well.

This 43-hectare vineyard is on soils that are a mix of gravel and clay with some limestone deposits and the average age is 35 years. Merlot hand harvested between Sept. 29th and Oct. 7th and the cabernet between Oct. 12th and 18th. Yields were 42 hls/ha after selection and saignée. Alcohol at 14%. Aromas of spring flowers blackberry and cassis fill the nose with an underlying gravelly rocky foundation. On the palate the power is dialed up with black raspberry supported by deep mocha blackberry jam and some nice minerality. The wine is precise and full-bodied with a lingering finish.
