Critic Notes

One of the stars of the vintage for this appellation, this property, owned by Juliette Becot, produces a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, and looked after by Michel Rolland’s right-hand man in Bordeaux, Jean-Philippe Forte, this stunning 2006 exhibits sweet blackberry, black currant, smoky, toasty oak, espresso roast, and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with precise minerality, and good focus, purity, texture, and depth, this superb sleeper of the vintage should be consumed over the next decade. Good value.
