Unfortunately, the production from proprietor Axelle Courdurie is minuscule. The 2011 exhibits exotic black cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with spice aromas that resemble a Northern Rhone such as Cote Rotie. The complexity of the aromatics at this stage was surprising. Medium to full-bodied with luscious fruit and a silky, suave, savory finish, it will provide delicious drinking over the next 7-8 years. - Robert Parker

Finishes long with crushed stone and a lingering mocha element.

100% merlot from a tiny 2.5 hectare vineyard. Production is a mere 300 cases. Deep purple red. Blackberries motor oil licorice and spice box mix with red fruits and fresh earth aromas on the nose.

Blackberries motor oil licorice and spice box mix with red fruits and fresh earth aromas on the nose. The flamboyant palate has lively acidity medium tannins and flavors of earthy black truffle and anise. A real beauty. This will benefit from aging for 5-7 years after bottling and drink well into 2030+.
