This is one of the few 2009s that performed less impressively from bottle than from barrel. (In most cases, as great as they were from barrel, the wines were even more profound from bottle.) This wine seems to be very much in the style of a 2005, with very high levels of worrisome tannin, a dense purple color and some real meat and concentration, but the tannins are austere and astringent. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025? Wine Advocate.February, 2012

This has a well defined, lifted nose that is showing less of over-ripeness than other Saint Emilions. Raspberry, strawberry and a touch of tobacco, coalescing in the glass. The palate is very well balanced, good acidity, filigree tannins and great harmony towards the pure black cherry and plum finish. Good length. Very feminine. This is a superb effort. Bravo. Tasted March 2010.

Blueberry and raspberry aromas, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish

Very concentrated. Heady nose. Dry finish. A hint of tarmacadam. Actually relatively supple. Great effort has been made to soften the tannins. Just not very complete. But certainly ambitious.

Zesty, fragrant, harmonious. Delicious red berry fruit. Smooth, suave texture. Tannins long and refined. Drink 2015-2025
