JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
This is incredible for this site with intense fruit and wild acidity. Full and super lively with blueberry blackberry and firm tannins. Best ever. 75% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec.

A fresh core of plum and linzer torte fruit is laced with judicious toast with a nice dash of tobacco on the finish. -J.M.

Aging in 50% new 50% one-wine-old barrels for about 15 months. Alcohol 14.5%. Ripe blackberry cocoa and espresso permeate the nose. Sweet notes of crushed blackberry the core make for a generous mid-palate wrapped in tobacco. Full tannins linger on the finish providing tremendous staying power and layered structure and a sense that of precision even at this higher-than-normal alcohol level. Drink 2017-2025. 400 cases produced. of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt manage the vineyards.
