Reviews

JS97
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2013
This is fascinating with a nutty, dried herb, spices, berry and hints of toasted character. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. This has a wonderful density of fruit and length. Amazing. Try in 2020.

Produced from a tiny 3.65 hectare vineyard situated on the limestone plateau with vines at an average 48 years of age. Hand-harvested beginning on Oct. 16th and yields were only 24 hls/ha. Aged in 80% new French oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. Alcohol 14.5%. Ripe blueberry and blackberry are the primary fruit components on the nose leading to a sweet perfume. With more fruit and plenty of spice namely cinnamon on the palate the flavor profile is complemented by a chalky minerality. Full bodied but not heavy the tannins are well concealed by the wine's richness and structure and lead to a long focused finish. This will easily last 20 years.

A Blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with 14.5% natural alcohol, the higher percentage of Merlot in this wine than in the Pavie gives it a stunning opulence, thickness and luxuriousness. Opaque purple, with notes... A Blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with 14.5% natural alcohol, the higher percentage of Merlot in this wine than in the Pavie gives it a stunning opulence, thickness and luxuriousness. Opaque purple, with notes of mulberry and kirsch liqueur leaning toward blacker fruits, subtle smoked meats and some lead pencil and vanillin, this is another brawny, full-bodied, yet remarkably precise and fresh style of wine despite its sensational extract and power. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30-40 years. - Robert Parker

Hedonist alert-dense fleshy layers of fig sauce warm cocoa dark currant confiture and exotic spice fill this red which also shows plenty of grip with a smoldering wood note on the back end. -J.M.
