Another of my favorite estates from the southern part of the Medoc, Macau, this Haut-Medoc cru bourgeois is a blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. The alcohol was 14% and the wine bottled unfined and unfiltered by its consulting oenologist, the brilliant Claude Gros. Wonderfully dark ruby/purple in color, with loads of sweet berry fruit as well as hints of licorice and charcoal, the wine displays a lush texture, medium to full body, and the vintage’s tell-tale ripeness, high glycerin and silky texture. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. ||(A member of the Association of Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.) Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Vintex. There is a lot of oak on the nose that unfortunately obfuscates some attractive black cherry and cassis fruit. The palate is full-bodied and dense, good back bone, rather introverted towards the finish but there is good fruit concentration here. This should work out fine by bottling. Tasted March 2010.

Pretty aromas of currant and berries, with a mineral undertone. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a fruity finish. Nice wood under it all. Well-crafted young red. Could be best ever from here

Very dark. Simple, sweet, lift. Round and polished and easy but a bit unambitious. GV for early/ mid drinking?
