This has depth of fruit and the toast to go with it as tasty anise and plum cake notes are melding nicely with the core of blueberry and blackberry. Starting to round out on the finish too as it soaks up the toast.-J.M.

The 12-hectare vineyard is situated just 300 meters west of St. Philippe d'Aiguilhe on thin clay atop deep limestone similar to those that characterize the Saint Emilion plateau. Average vine age is 38 years. Aged in 65% new oak and 35% once-used barrels. Nearly opaque purple core. Pervasive aromas of spring flowers along with ripe black fruits and a touch of fresh turned earth round out the aromatic and perfumed nose. Extremely ripe black plum and cherry flavor the entry with a juicy mouthcoating mid-palate offers the rich supple texture that has been signature of this wine in the past four vintages. Tannins are supple and polished. A major sleeper of the vintage. Jean-Philippe Fort consults. Enjoy upon release and for the following ten years.
