A modern approach with roasted vanilla bean and anise notes leading the way for plum sauce and warm currant confiture flavors. A little firm wood still shows on the finish but good material here.-J.M.

From Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez, this blend of 57% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot comes from one of the most ancient fortified chateaux of the Medoc (constructed in 1120 A.D.). Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of graphite, black currants, spice box and charcoal. This medium-bodied 2011 reveals excellent to outstanding concentration, sweet tannin and a long finish. A sleeper of the vintage, it is a beautiful effort from this challenging vintage. Moreover, it will evolve for 15 or more years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A bit of white pepper and spice tickles the nose while earth and herbal aromas follow. Though there's a light green streak on the palate dark fruit flavors prevail. Its tanginess may calm with time. Try to approach in 2-3 years and enjoy for the following 5-10 years.
