Average critic rating : 90.5 points



One of the vintage’s most astonishing wines, this superb effort boasts a dense plum/blue/purple color, aromas of camphor, graphite, roasted meats, and black as well as blue fruits, a full-bodied, powerful style, low acidity, ripe tannin, and excellent concentration. Give this beauty 3-4 years of bottle age, and enjoy it over the following two decades. It has the potential to be one of the vintage’s longest lived wines. Kudos to the proprietor, Catherine Pere-Verge, and her winemaker, Michel Rolland, for exploiting this property to its fullest potential. Wine Advocate.June, 2007



Intense aromas of mushroom and berries follow through to a medium body, with light, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Balanced and delicate. Best after 2008. 1,000 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator2007
