The wine displays lots of rich berry fruit, some licorice, cedar, underbrush, and incense. It is medium to full-bodied, up-front and forward, and quite drinkable despite the fact that it is less than three years of age. It should drink well for 12-15 years.||One of the strongest efforts from proprietor Sophie Fourcade in a number of years, the 2010 is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from a 33-acre vineyard that was upgraded in the 2012 new classification of the wines of St.-Emilion.

This has a very ripe, opulent bouquet with lifted dark cherries, cassis and plum, quite prominent new oak but nice purity. The palate is sharp on the entry, chewy quite hard tannins with a rather abrupt finish. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Berry and milk chocolate character, with medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. jamessuckling.com

Lightly savoury nose. Thick and finishes dry. Lots of concentration here for the long term. A slight lack of juice but sincerely meant. jancisrobinson.com

Cote de Baleau. 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, (the same portions the vineyard is planted in) make-up the blend. Licorice, 5 spice and black cherry scents open to a medium bodied, fennel and black cherry filled winish. Lovers of well-priced St. Emilion wine should be all over this wine. winecellarinsider.com
