A full-bodied wine, but ethereal in its elegance and finesse, the wine has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, new saddle leather, white chocolate and spice. Extremely full-bodied, but again, not showing any weighty fatigue or any type of aggressiveness, this wine has extraordinary purity and richness as well as a blockbuster finish of close to a minute, yet is so flawless, seamless and compelling, it’s hard to believe the wine is this concentrated and rich. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but it certainly can be drunk in 3-4 years and, I’m sure, cellared for as long as 25-35 years from now. - Robert Parker

Black fruits are layered with wood, dry tannins and a beautiful aromatic quality. The wine is deep and complex, built for the long term with its power, density and considerable elegance.

The wine reached reached 14.58% alcohol with a pH 3.8. A deep purple color leads into a licorice floral oak and spicy blackberry perfume plush textures and a finish that offers oak coco and black cherries. About 1000 cases were produced of this unique St. Emilion.

A burly, extracted style, with lots of roasted apple wood and mesquite flavors leading the way, followed by briary grip and slightly chewy plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors. Shows more heft than cut and drive, featuring scads of tobacco, ganache and loam on the finish. If cellaring can tame the chewy edges, this will become an impressive, modern-styled wine down the road. Best from 2016 through 2030. – JM

Pliant, layered and deep, with captivating sweetness to its dark berry and floral flavors. In a distinctly plush, creamy style but the wine's youthfully aggressive finish and serious ripe tannins suggests that it will be better for five to seven years of cellaring. Seriously rich wine with lovely purity and floral lift.

A juicy and savory wine with tobacco, forest floor and chocolate character. Roses too. Lots of red fruits. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Better after 2017.

Potential blend of 80% cabernet franc and 20% merlot. The nose offers ripe plum cassis and graphite mixed with vanilla mocha and minerals.

The nose offers ripe plum cassis and graphite mixed with vanilla mocha and minerals. Full bodied and super modern on the palate the mid palate provides round tannins that are well integrated with the acidity and alcohol level. The flagship estate from garagiste Jonathan Maltus finishes smooth and complete. Best from 2018-2030.
