James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2013
This is very refined with a wonderful depth of fruit with wonderful fine tannins. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a long, long finish. It's so integrated and intense. 80% Cabernet Franc. Try in 2017.

From a tiny 6.5-acre estate just to the west of Canon La Gaffeliere in the foothills of St.-Emilion, the 2010's sweet, floral nose intermixed with blueberry and black raspberry fruits, graphite and incense is followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich, heady wine with sensational blackberry and graphite notes in the spectrum of flavors. Inky purple and full-bodied (especially for a Cabernet Franc-dominated wine), this is a beauty that has enough tannin to suggest stashing it away for 3-4 years and drinking it over the following 20-25 years. - Robert Parker

Sexy aromas of black raspberry, mocha, violet and smoky minerality. Plush and pliant on the palate, but with nicely integrated acidity and supporting saline minerality giving clarity and lift to the intense black raspberry, mocha and graphite flavors. Nicely balanced wine with chewy ripe tannins and enough concentration of fruit to support its strong oak element. I've been a fan of this wine, which includes a very high 80% cabernet franc, for years.
