This is lovely with floral notes at first which are then followed by pure precise blueberry plum and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors.

Sexy black fruity cocktail on the nose complicated by grapey smoky and vanillin nuances. Rich dense and suave with juicy delineated blackberry and black cherry fruit complicated by minerals and fresh flowers. The smooth finish features spicy chocolate and plum flavors. Though concentrated and rich this wine maintains a lovely graceful high-acid quality that provides for maximum definition of its flavors. A beautiful wine and one of my sentimental favorites of the vintage.

A wine with a beautiful concentration of fruit and depth. Full body with fully integrated tannins and a long, long finish. A touch of decadence. Superb for the vintage. Better in 2017.

The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry. Grippy tannins a lot of extraction here; this is a "pumped up" Larcis with a weighty quite dense finish of oaky red fruit. A little chewy on the finish but I admire its purity and panache. Tasted April 2012.

This dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 exhibits a stunning bouquet of black fruits, spring flowers and confiture of cherries, raspberries, spice and earth. Complete from beginning to end, this medium-bodied 2011 does not possesses as much power as the 2005, 2009 or 2010, but it is a highly successful effort for the vintage. Moreover, it can be drunk early on as it is a delicious, complex St.-Emilion that should last 10-15 years. This is a final blend of 78% Merlot, and 22% Cabernet Franc cropped at 21 hectoliters per hectare. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Planted to 78% merlot and 22% cabernet franc. This 10.85 hectare vineyard sits on the limestone-based soils of the south/southwest exposed Cote Pavie. Notes of cranberry and spice on the nose.

Notes of cranberry and spice on the nose. The palate is up-front with rich deep juicy ripe blueberry fruit and a tannic texture. Hedonistic and long with its fresh acidity this will need 2-3 years in bottle to integrate. Top Right Bank enologists Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt consult. Enjoy 2017-2025. Tasted twice.
