While I was hoping for something slightly better in 2009, this is still a seductive blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, bottled after 12 months to retain its fruit. With a very sweet spot in the middle, although it is technically dry, it exhibits loads of black currants, roasted herbs and tobacco leaf as well as hints of underbrush and forest floor. This medium-bodied wine is forward enough to drink over the next decade. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Ducru Beaucaillou. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, matured in 27% new oak, this has a very tight, rather pointed nose, just a little leafy at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied, soft on the entry, just a little disjointed on the mid-palate with a foursquare finish. Tasted March 2010.

Round and silky, with a lovely richness of chocolate, currant and plum character. Full and flavorful. Delicious now, but much better in 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Wonderful aromas of flowers such as roses. Full-bodied, with firm and precise tannins. Fresh fruit, with a citrus undertone. Medium finish

Very fresh and sappy nose. Sweet start but fresh and zesty. Chewy finish. Nice elegance and racy. Maybe not the longest lived wine. INAO decided to use Napoleonic system to identify parcels – soils quite different. Slightly green and sinewy on the finsh.
