The most limited cuvee is the blockbuster 2011 Les Portes de l’Am (50% Merlot, 25% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Franc). This offering takes the charm and early appeal of the Caduce and combines it with the richness, ripeness, density and power of La Gargone, then ratchets up the level of body and power, resulting in a stunning wine that could easily be a cru classe given its perfume, richness and overall depth and equilibrium. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for another 7-8 years. It, too, is a major sleeper of the vintage. - Robert Parker

This is impressive for the vintage with dark chocolate and blueberry character. Full and juicy with plenty of depth. Well made.

50% merlot 25% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. 38 year-old vines planted in south-facing hillside clay/limestone soil harvested on October 7th. Yields of just 24 hls/ha after being triple sorted and aged in 50% new oak... 50% merlot 25% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. 38 year-old vines planted in south-facing hillside clay/limestone soil harvested on October 7th. Yields of just 24 hls/ha after being triple sorted and aged in 50% new oak. Essentially an old vine 'top of the line' cuvee from Bouscat. This is an absolutely delicious wine and a truly amazing value. Very modern and rich with blueberry blackberry and vanilla that dominate on the nose and palate. Spicy with well-integrated tannins and a very smooth complete mouthfeel. A `wow' wine for me!
