The finest wine yet made by this estate run by Stephane Derenoncourt’s wife, Christine, this blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. It exhibits copious aromas of blueberries, raspberries, asphalt, truffles, charcoal and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied and powerful with low acidity, excellent freshness and precision, and deep, glycerin-imbued, high octane flavors, the vintage’s tell-tale voluptuousness and opulence are nicely wedded to a sense of freshness and delineation. Drink this beautiful St.-Emilion over the next two decades. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Aromas of blueberries, with a toasted oak and meat character. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a berry, toasted oak finish. Rich, yet subtle. Needs at least three or four years to come together. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Blueberry and cream pie aromas, yet subtle and aromatic. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely integrated tannins and a long finish. Polished

Dark fruit, lots of spice up front. Harmonious though not very generous in the middle, or it's gone into a shell. Firm, dry savoury tannins. Not very approachable now but has decent length. (JH) Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Concentrated and gourmand in style. Really exuberant fruit. Firm but fine tannins. Good balance and length. Potentially a very enjoyable wine. Drink 2014-2024
