Average critic rating : 87.5 points



This is an up and coming Pauillac estate that is making better and better wines. Moreover, they remain realistically priced.||This is a Medoc 1998 that is revealing more mid-palate, flesh, concentration, and sweeter tannin than it did during its previous year and a half in barrel. A blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 38% Merlot, this black/purple-colored claret exhibits sweet aromas of licorice, incense, Asian spices, cedar, plums, and black currants. Full-bodied and sweet on the entry, with good acidity, definition, and ripe tannin, it will be drinkable young, yet last for 12-15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2001



Mushroom and blackberry, with hints of flowers. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Nice texture, but needs drinking.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
