Outer quote mark Very opulent and rich with loads of fruit and spice. Walnut and chocolate. Full and chewy. Exciting. Inner quote mark (3/2016)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or more. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A solid, toasty style, with ganache, warm fig and dark coffee notes melded together and running through the grippy finish... (JM, Web—2012) Inner quote mark

Almost exotic levels of warm, plush chocolate cherry and cassis-laden fruit coat the tongue when tasting this velvety beauty. Underneath all that fruit lies plenty of structure, resulting in talc-like mineral scents and limestone aromas on the long finish of sweet and grippy tannins.

This wine is a perfect example of the lush and powerful 2009 vintage. Lots of chocolate, mocha, purple fruit, cassis, but also some welcoming earthiness and forest floor notes. The tannins are very much present, but they are ripe and therefore also adds - and frame - to the lushness of this wine.

Now this property is under the guidance of Sylvie Cazes. It makes fine wines year in and year out. Plenty of spicy merlot aromas and flavors. Try with a pork roast.
Drink from 2016 to 2025
