An absolutely stunning wine from the Janoueix family, this dense, full-bodied, wonderfully floral and blueberry/blackberry-scented wine shows some toasty vanillin, but then hits the palate with a full-bodied thunder and cascade of glycerin and fruit in its luscious personality. Captivating and seductive, thick, juicy, full-bodied and pure, this is a beautiful St.-Emilion fruit bomb to drink over the next 10-15 years. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

The nose is a little taciturn at first but it develops nicely in the glass with pure dark cherries, blackcurrants and dark plum. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied with dense, slightly chewy tannins, good acidity and a touch of spiciness on the dense, “thick” finish. It will need some bottle age but it has good potential. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Solid and structure with mineral and blueberry character. Long and silky. Intense and balanced. Confession of high quality here. jamessuckling.com

Very ripe and flattering, with loads of linzer torte, cassis and crushed cherry fruit, but well-supported by notes of cocoa, graphite and toasty spice. The finish is long and grippy. Very solid. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

La Confession 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc form the assemblage that came in at 14.7% alcohol that will be aged in 40% cigar shaped barrels. Deep ruby in color, the wine offers oak, blackberry, licorice and stone aromas. Fleshy in texture, this soft, ripe wine is filled with licorice, black cherry, spice and mocha.winecellarinsider.com

This wine has freshness and vibrancy with wonderful layers of flavours. This is a medium bodied wine with good depth and finish -- its approachability will allow the wine to be enjoyed in its youth as well as with time in bottle. The 2010 was more successful vintage for La Confession than their 2009 vintage. It has a fairly long finish with notes of spices and dark berries. asianpalate.com
