This has blossomed into one of the silkiest, sexiest, wines I’ve tasted in ages. The perfect ripe sweet fruit feels like each berry was hand polished with a velvet cloth. The wine is rich, concentrated, deep, long, complex and utterly hedonistic. Pure bottled hedonism at its best!

The palate is medium-bodied with a grippy entry. This has fine backbone, perhaps a good deal of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Very expressive towards the finish and extremely persistent. A class act that is just beginning to show what it is capable of. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin

Quite lush with inviting cherry preserves plum sauce and cassis character. Very silky and refined with perfumy tea and incense notes. Long. -J.M.

The nose is timid at first expanding in the glass with touches of violet (quel surprise!) crème de cassis and a touch of Dorset plum and vanilla. The palate is almost mellifluous on the entry rounded and velvety in texture with a lot of creamy new oak. Very modern in style seductive but those tannins lend a little tension to the finish that was perhaps missing on the 2009 La Violette. Ravishing as always (although personally Le Gay is more my style.) Drink 2015-

Charming floral nose with violet and fragrant wild strawberries. Equally fine on the palate with wonderfully textured fine fruit and silky tannins. Racy and well balanced. So drinkable now but better in 2016.
