Nice density with a solid coated feel mid-palate as the fig and boysenberry flavors roll along supported by graphite pain d'épices and licorice snap on the back end. Nicely imbedded acidity too.-J.M.

A masculine, slightly rustic style of St.-Emilion, this dense ruby/purple-hued, medium-bodied 2011 exhibits notes of mulberries, black cherries, earth, graphite and a touch of background oak. It possesses elevated tannins, but a good attack and impressive purity as well as depth. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 15+ years. - Robert Parker

Planted to 75% merlot 20% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon on 16.5 hectares of mixed clay and limestone soil. Vines average 35 years old with a planting density of 6200 vines per hectare.

Vines average 35 years old with a planting density of 6200 vines per hectare. Aged in 80% new oak. Purplish pink color. Prune plum cassis and floral notes emerge first with chalky minerality and chocolate following. Medium to full bodied with nice persistence of tannin and acidity and a wonderfully rich and long finish. This will need a few years to gain its equilibrium but I am confident that it will do just that. Enjoy 2017-2030.
