Average critic rating : 90.0 points



Proprietor Christian Dauriac’s 12-acre vineyard in St.-Emilion’s commune of Ste.-Hippolyte can produce beefy, tannic, rustic-styled wines, but over recent vintages he has tamed the tannins, producing more charm and finesse in his cuvees. The deep, opaque purple-tinged 2006 reveals attractive creme de cassis and blackberry notes intermixed with hints of graphite and roasted herbs. Dense, medium to full-bodied, and powerful with high, but sweet, well-integrated tannins, this lovely wine should be at its finest between 2013-2026. Wine Advocate.February, 2009



Aromas of toasty oak and berries follow through to a medium body, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Polished and attractive. This has a solid core of fruit. Best after 2012. 2,830 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2009.
