The dark ruby-colored 2001 displays abundant quantities of sweet, herbaceous-tinged, earthy, spicy, black cherry fruit. Medium-bodied with good texture, this attractive effort is best consumed over the next 5- 8 years. This appears to be an up and coming property now that Stephane Derenoncourt has been brought in as a consultant. I have always liked this approachable, plush, character-filled St.-Emilion. The 10-acre vineyard (one of the few terraced vineyards in St.-Emilion) is planted with 80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, all at least 40 years of age.
