Less impressive from bottle than it was from barrel, this wine from the limestone soils of St.-Estephe has closed down considerably, displaying lots of tannin. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the wine has a deep color and a steely, almost Graves-like earthiness, with some spice and red and black fruits, but the generosity I noticed from barrel has become more sinewy and austere. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following 10-15+ years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Chateau Pichon-Lalande. There is a lot of finesse on this bashful nose: blackberry, a touch of cedar and earthy/clayey scents emerging with time in the glass. Good definition, masculine. The palate is full-bodied, there is a slight aggression to the tannins, not quite as fine as I would like, good fruit concentration though with blackberry, boysenberry, a touch of cedar and pencil lead. Sinewy finish, good length. This needs to mellow out by the time of bottling. Tasted March 2010.

A straightforward wine with spicy fruit and a medium body. Medium finish. We will see

Blackish crimson. Rather savoury and cool on the nose – rather different from most St- Estèphes. Very dense and then juicy. Thick and sweet and then horribly dry on the end. Plays the ripe- juice card with a bit of acidity and austerity on the finish. Very drying. May just get there in the end. I give it the benefit of the doubt...
