This property seems to get relatively good representation in the United States. The 2009 is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Attractive loamy soil notes intermixed with black currants and mulberries jump from the glass of this fruity, solidly constructed, mid-weight wine. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. ||(A member of the Association of Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.) Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Vintex. Black, liquorices and smoke tinged nose with moderate intensity, with a touch of hickory developing with time. The palate is full-bodied with dense tannins, grippy with meaty black fruits, assertive and lacking some refinement towards the dry finish. I am afraid that this should be much better and I would like to try another sample. Tasted March 2010.

Crushed blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a pretty texture. Slightly hollow center palate, but attractive

Very dark purple with a hint of grey. Quite lively. A little brutal but chock full of fruit and tannin.
