This property have turned out a finesse-styled 2010 with loads of blueberry and raspberry fruit as well as hints of pomegranate, crushed rock and damp earth. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is medium-bodied and stylish, not a blockbuster by any means, but a wine of finesse to drink over the next 10-12 years. ||This old property was brought to life by Dr. Alain Raynaud and then sold to the owners of Cheval Blanc.

Now in its third year under the Cheval Blanc team who have converted the vineyard to organic viticulture, this is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec, this has quite a broody, introverted bouquet with mulberry, dark cherry and some light sandy notes. It would benefit from a little more vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with light, slightly grainy tannins, good acidity but showing a little hardness towards the finish that will dissipate by the time of bottling. It just tastes a little “static” and needs a little more tension. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Fresh and clean with fine tannins and a blueberry and orange peel character. Peaches too. Long and very pretty. One of the best Quinaults for a long time. 85 percent Merlot, 12 percent Cabernet France and 8 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. jamessuckling.com

Rounded and accessible in feel, with bright, floral-tinged blueberry and black cherry fruit. Spice and toast is subtle, and the finish easygoing. Not superdeep, but should knit up well enough. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bought by Cheval Blanc in 2008 just before the harvest and now transformed. Sandy gravels right in Libourne. Organic. Very opulent and rich on the nose. Then admirably fresh on the palate. Lots of zest and really strong liquorice. Very fine tannins there on the finish. Really spicy and vibrant. Almost seems to fizz! Long. The Cheval team have lowered the proportion of new oak and really transformed the vineyard, and the wine! jancisrobinson.com

This is a modern, extracted style. Since 2008, the owner is Bernard Arnault, the same owner as Cheval Blanc. Pierre Lurton and his team are heading up the winemaking here. This is a very dense wine, filled wth very ripe, prune flavours. The tannins are astringent and chewy and will need time to come around. Moderate length. asianpalate.com
