Fabulous subtle aromas of black currants, violets and lilacs with a hot stone undertone. Full-bodied and dense, it shows such wonderful energy and synergy that delivers a firm yet gentle tannin backbone and complex mouthfeel that seduces you. Evolves wonderfully. Second wine from this new estate, which is owned by Christian Moueix of Dominus and Bordeaux. Release is March 2017.

Gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, along with the telltale cassis and floral notes, jump from the glass. Again, this is Pauillac-like, with some cedar wood and subtle barrique smells. Again produced nearly all from Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is full-bodied, powerful, rich and long, with slightly sweeter tannins than the 2012. Production in 2013 was 960 cases, and Moueix told me that the entire growing season averaged about two and half weeks ahead of schedule from bloom break to harvest. This is a prodigious effort and will certainly stand as the great Ulysses of the first trio to be released. I suspect it will be drinkable in 3-4 years and keep for 30 or more, given the Moueix track record. - Robert Parker

A typical wine from the eastern sector of Oakville on the border with Yountville, the 2013 is loaded with feral, savory notes, while the expression of blue/blackish fruit lies a bit more in the background. In 2013, the main signature is an expression of structure that is both vertical but also incredibly insistent through to the finish. In other words, this is a super-classic 2013 built for the cellar.

The second vintage from Christian Moueix of Dominus/Bordeaux made with fruit from a new vineyard plot in Oakville. The power and intensity is deep in its core and will take some years for it to come out and shine but in its early stages upon tasting, the best is yet to come. Deep and powerful with aromas of rich black fruits, chewy silky tannin, the structure is unreal on this. Aromas continue with left bank, classic cassis and fresh pencil lead shaving. A lift from the fresh finish that is truly intense and keeps going long after the wine leaves your mouth. Those who wait will be rewarded as this is easily a two decade+ wine!
