Recently sold to a Chinese entrepreneur, in 2010 this estate produced a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot. The wine is deep and clearly a sleeper of the vintage, with loads of fruit, glycerin and extract. Its excellent purity and loads of spice box as well as red and black currants make for a delicious, impressively endowed wine to drink over the next 10-12 years. ||A member of the Alliance des Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.

A blend of 51.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48.5% Merlot clocking in at 13.7% alcohol, this has a lifted, quite assertive nose with blackberry, a touch of briary, cedar and pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly grainy tannins, just a little hardness at the moment but that should dissipate by the time of bottling. It is a little austere and conservative towards the finish but very good weight. Masculine. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Racy and bright, with kirsch, floral and chalk notes. The finish has good nervosité and tension. Tightly wound now, but the length is there. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Tasted non-blind. —J.M. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

Dark crimson. Scented with just the slightest hint of green. Sweet start and very luscious. Dramatic and crowd-pleasing with real potential for development. Neat finish. Shiny and should be VGV.

Bernadotte - Blending 51.5% Cabernet Sauvignon with the remainder Merlot, the wine opens with cassis and sweet black cherry balsamic scents. Medium bodied with dark berries and cassis in the finish, this should drink well on release. 88-90 Pts Jeff Leve winecellarinsider.com

This wine has tough tannins and is not approachable at this moment. The austerity and high tannins will require at least 3-5 years of bottle age to open. Delicious aromatics which show potential, but on the palate, the wine is chunky and dense. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

Pretty fragrant, damson nose. Balanced, fresh and full of fruit. Finishes nicely dry.
