This tiny jewel of a property, situated close to La Mission-Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion, has turned out one of the stars of the 2011 vintage. A deep dark ruby/purple color is followed by hints of graphite, charcoal, creme de cassis and Christmas fruitcake. This medium-bodied Pessac-Leognan is gorgeously concentrated with impeccably well-integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and oak. An authoritatively long finish adds to the class and nobility of this wine. Drink it over the next 15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

This shows a lovely quality of tannins with a chocolate, berry and spice character. Nutmeg too. Full and juicy. Well done. One third Cabernet Sauvignon, one third Merlot and one third Cabernet Franc. jamessuckling.com

Polished, with nice mouthfeel to the range of cassis, black cherry and raspberry fruit. Sweet spice fills in on the finish. Should stretch out more as well. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Deeply concentrated black summer fruits, rich extraction and slightly raw tannins, but the ripeness of fruit will dominate in time. Drink 2017-2027. Decanter.com
