Under the same proprietorship as Labegorce (the Perrodos), this property is attempting to make a comeback after many years of so-so performances. The 2011 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a masculine, dense, virile personality with lots of meat, black and red fruit, and earth characteristics. A medium-bodied, structured, but not excessively tannic wine with excellent concentration, it has plenty of potential, but will require patience. It should keep for 15+ years. The final blend was 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 12% Petit Verdot. The natural alcohol came in at a relatively high 14.5%. Drink: 2014 - 2029. Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014

Wonderful density of fruit with firm chewy tannins. Smokey undertone. Full with beautiful tannins and a lovely length. New winemaking is paying off here. jamessuckling.com

Frankly modern style, with dark, rich, velvety-textured ganache, plum sauce and steeped black currant fruit. Plenty long and with good drive. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com
