The large wall in ruins approaching St.-Emilion from the north that stands looming over a vineyard at the very entrance to the village is actually owned by this chateau. This is another tiny estate of just over three acres, and it is looked after with impeccable handling by the staff of Michel Rolland. Deep bluish/purple in color, with plenty of black raspberry, blueberry and crushed rock notes, the 2009 Les Grandes Murailles is soft, opulent, round, charming and seductive. It is a beautiful wine, although there is very little of it, but it should drink nicely for 15 or more years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at the Association de Crus Class? tasting at Grand Pontet. This has a very ripe blueberry and black plum scented nose with a touch of vanilla essence...perhaps a little glossy for my liking. I prefer the palate at the moment: bright black fruits, quite a zesty Saint Emilion, joyful, with a taut, zingy black cherry finish with fine minerality. This is promising for after bottling ? once that nose calms down! Tasted March 2010.

Blackberries and blueberries, with mineral and lemon rind. Full body, chewy and tannic. Structured and slightly austere, but fresh and fine. Try in 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Sweet tobacco and berry aromas follow through to a medium body, with chocolate, vanilla and blueberry character. Pretty, but a little underwhelming

Rich and powerful in terms of body and structure. Needs time to settle. Drink 2015-2026
