This exceptional wine is presently as impressive as the 2010, but obviously it is much more drinkable. Made from yields of 32 hectoliters per hectare with 14% natural alcohol, this blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon reveals some spicy new oak along with lots of vanillin, underbrush, black currants and black cherry jam. Dense ruby/purple-colored and full-bodied with moderate tannin, it is more supple and forward than the 2010. Nevertheless, this big 2008 needs 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep for 15-20 years.

Crushed blackberry on the nose, with spices and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with lovely sweet fruit and polished, refined tannins. Long and delicious. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009

Blackish crimson. Slightly burnt tinge on the nose. Sweet chocolatey start. Sinewy, polished but it does remind me a little more of Mendoza than St-Émilion. Very drying finish. Mouthful of ripe fruit, that’s for sure.www.jancisrobinson.com, 13 May 2009

Fragrant open fruit, herbaceous florality, nutmeg, vanilla and really classy oak in the background. Tremendous fruit which is generous and satisfying with grainy tannins, natural acidity and pleasing freshness. Very polished. 18.9/20. 5 Stars
