In 2010 the apple does not fall far from the tree with this wine 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc blend. Licorice spice jammy black cherry aromas open to a suave lush fennel spice and ripe dark berry finish.

Abundant ripe Merlot dominated the nose with mulberry cherry liqueur and crème de cassis: heady and exotic. The palate is rounded almost mellifluous on the entry low acidity layers of decadent ripe red-berried fruit... Abundant ripe Merlot dominated the nose with mulberry cherry liqueur and crème de cassis: heady and exotic. The palate is rounded almost mellifluous on the entry low acidity layers of decadent ripe red-berried fruit swathed puppy fat but somehow it manages to retain good definition on the finish. Well crafted.

The alcohol is more modest at 14% than many other St.-Emilions, but the wine displays a sumptuous personality, with loamy, sandy soil notes interwoven with black currant, blueberry and sweet cherry, some floral nuances... The alcohol is more modest at 14% than many other St.-Emilions, but the wine displays a sumptuous personality, with loamy, sandy soil notes interwoven with black currant, blueberry and sweet cherry, some floral nuances and a touch of toasty oak. It is a rich, full-bodied wine with moderate tannin. Give it several years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15 or more years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A solid, fleshy style, with ganache and tobacco up front, followed by ample layers of plum sauce, steeped fig and dark currant preserves. A ganache edge lingers nicely through the finish, with a tarry echo as well... A solid, fleshy style, with ganache and tobacco up front, followed by ample layers of plum sauce, steeped fig and dark currant preserves. A ganache edge lingers nicely through the finish, with a tarry echo as well. There's power to this, but ultimately the wine has purity at its core. Best from 2015 through 2030. – JM

Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of liqueur-like black raspberry, mocha, chocolate, game and truffley earth. Plush, smoky and sweet, with utterly pliant flavors of raspberry, mocha, truffle and loam. Finishes with a firm... Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of liqueur-like black raspberry, mocha, chocolate, game and truffley earth. Plush, smoky and sweet, with utterly pliant flavors of raspberry, mocha, truffle and loam. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and excellent breadth and length. I'd hold this for three or four years and then enjoy it over the next ten. No rough edges to this lovely merlot-based wine.

Ripe fruity nose with plums, blueberries and strawberries. Walnuts too. Full-bodied and with ripe pure fruit on the palate. Nice chalky mineral note in the medium-long finish. Fine tannins and really smooth offering... Ripe fruity nose with plums, blueberries and strawberries. Walnuts too. Full-bodied and with ripe pure fruit on the palate. Nice chalky mineral note in the medium-long finish. Fine tannins and really smooth offering, really enjoyable drinking already now. But, of course, will improve with age.

Close to the classic St. Emilion blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. This estate is run by Christine and Stephane Derenoncourt.

This estate is run by Christine and Stephane Derenoncourt. The bouquet offers cranberry sweet currant and mineral complemented by pepper coffee and Asian spice. Rich and dense with robust tannins and good length this medium to full bodied wine has a silky texture. The finish is a little subtle for this wine but it is full of promise so give it time and perhaps it will come around. Drink from 2016-2026.
