This name hardly appeals to most English-speaking people, but the wine itself is consistently well-made and a perennial sleeper of the vintage. The 2012, from this tiny 10-acre jewel of a vineyard on clay and limestone soils with a full southern exposure, is a blend of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. Excellent minerality, creme de cassis and blueberry and raspberry fruit jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple wine. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and impressive, the finish is long, and the wine, sexy and delicious. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Apr 2015, www.robertparker.com
