The gorgeous 2011 Louis (80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) is a beautifully precise, well-delineated, dense purple-colored effort displaying classic notes of creme de cassis, white chocolate, spice box and background oak. Full-bodied and rich, this impressive, surprisingly dense and opulent 2011 is a star of the vintage. Give it 1-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12-15. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Soft and fruity with fine tannins and a pretty finish. Full and refined. Really delicious already.

90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. Situated on the 5.2 hectare Fombrauge property on the north-facing clay and limestone slopes of the Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes commune. Aged in 60% new oak and 40% once-used barrels... 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. Situated on the 5.2 hectare Fombrauge property on the north-facing clay and limestone slopes of the Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes commune. Aged in 60% new oak and 40% once-used barrels. Reserved on the nose with notes of strawberry compote the richness of the wine reveals itself on the palate with opulent black fruit and violet flavors balanced by the vintage's fresh acidity. Will be up-front right out of the gate and will certainly benefit from 7-10 years of age. Founded by the late Thierry de la Brosse co-owner of the famous Parisian restaurant L'Ami Louis. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. Enjoy 2018-2030.
