Big rich and dense with red cherry and black cherry coating the mouth. The unctuous chocolatey finish shows juicy acidity and a lovely uplifting floral note. The well-placed vines on clay-and-limestone soil are surrounded on three sides by those of Canon Angelus and Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse. Jonathan Maltus told me the cabernet franc is from 1947 and because it's planted on clay over limestone it gives the wine a unique mouthfeel and will require time and patience. This is a truly outstanding VCM and one of the real successes of the 2011 vintage.

A spectacular effort from Jonathan Maltus, this inky/purple-colored, complex 2011 (made from 60-year-old vines and a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) offers up notes of graphite, sweet blackberry and cassis... A spectacular effort from Jonathan Maltus, this inky/purple-colored, complex 2011 (made from 60-year-old vines and a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) offers up notes of graphite, sweet blackberry and cassis, and hints of earth, espresso, spice and chocolate. Already drinking well, this rich, layered, full-bodied St.-Emilion was cropped at a low 30 hectoliters per hectare. It can be enjoyed now and over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr

This features aromas of game cigar box sweet cherry and other ripe red fruit. On the palate big structured tannins are a match for the acidity while dark chocolate and espresso bean flavors come through on the lengthy finish. Everything is in balance. From the Jonathan Malthus portfolio.
