Production hovers close to 1000 cases. Deep purple in color jammy black fruit espresso licorice and spice this thick powerful dense dark wine is stuffed to the brim with decadent ripe fruit licorice and chocolate that defines voluptuous in a wine. Unctuous and long the wine ends with licorice chocolate spicy plum and jammy berry liqueur.

The wine's dense opaque purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of graphite blackberry and blueberry liqueur white chocolate and vanillin. With crisp acidity massive tannins and a seamless layered multidimensional mouthfeel it pushes the limit of extraction and richness but everything comes together in the end. It should drink well for 20-25+ years.

This is super classy with super fine and polished tannins. Chocolate Indian spices and berries. Full and beautiful. Super fine.

This gushes with exotic fig sauce mulled blueberry and blackberry fruit and enticing black tea anise and charcoal notes. Long and very fleshy with powerful pure fruit in reserve. -J.M.

Planted to 100% merlot. From the oldest 9-hectare portion of the Faugeres vineyard. Vines are 45 years old located on the southeast facing slopes in brown limestone soils.

Vines are 45 years old located on the southeast facing slopes in brown limestone soils. Hand-harvested between Oct. 7th and 13th. Yields in 2010 were 20 hls/ha. This opaquely colored wine shows distinct ripe black cherries and exotic spices on the nose. Polished vanilla oak notes on the palate and finely grained tannins to go along with a long finish. This is a very concentrated wine. Some 3-5 years would help open up this wine and can be enjoyed over the following 10 to 15 years. Stephan von Neipperg and Michel Rolland consult.
