Interesting aromas of blackberries, black truffle and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Try after 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Tasted at Vintex. This has a rich, opulent nose of black cherries, kirsch and smoke, well defined but perhaps just a little heady at the moment. The palate is full-bodied, grippy tannins, firm backbone with an pleasing austere, slightly peppery finish that reminds me more of a Saint Julien. Good potential. Tasted March 2010.
Blueberry and currant aromas follow through to a full body, with very pretty fruit and a chewy finish. A little overextracted. But juicy and yummy
Dense red, fine fragrant Margaux fruit, well-expressed with elegance and natural vineyard depth, fine personality and all in balance. Drink 2014-20.
Bright crimson. Mellow, quite evolved nose. Relatively soft and simple. Not that much density. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
