While a big, rich wine, it stays beautifully balanced and pure, yet dark, chocolatey fruit is certainly the buzzword here. It’s a winner and will keep for two decades. This estate covers 10 hectares all located in the lieu-dit of Badette and was purchased in 2012 by a Belgian wine merchant. This is another estate more than worth keeping on your radar.

Full-bodied, rich and opulent, hitting the palate with a powerful and compelling wall of black and blue fruits plus oodles of spicy accents, it has gorgeous, velvety tannins and fantastic length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This has a sheen of hazelnut-flavored oak set around fresh violets, cassis and blue plums. The palate has a stunning array of fluid, pastry-like tannins that deliver a ripe plum-stone finish. Try from 2020.
