Delicious. The tannins delicate fruit and mineral citrus character is all in harmony with the fresh acidity. Finely crafted for the vintage.

This tiny 3-acre vineyard situated next to the cemetery in St.-Emilion has produced a deep ruby/purple-hued 2011 offering a big sweet nose of black cherry jam intermixed with chalk dust wet stone and spicy oak characteristics medium body and good glycerin and richness. Tasting quite primary it had probably just finished malolactic so it should flesh out even more as it ages in barrel. 89-91+

This direct red shows notes of linzer torte cherry preserves and pain d'épices with a graphite edge all running from start to finish. Medium-weight with good freshness.-J.M.

Garnet red with pink hues. A very pleasing and fruity nose complemented by aromas of fresh earth and truffle. The palate is peppery and layered with grippy tannins and high acidity yet has a very smooth balanced finish. This will need 2-3 years in bottle before drinking and can age for the following 15+ years. Drink 2016-2031.
