Description

92    Wine Enthusiast
“Rounded and rich, this generous, full-bodied wine comes from a single parcel in the heart of Saint-Émilion. Black fruits are structured with dense tannins and a firm tension between ripeness and dryness. The wine is powerful, finishing with pepper and spice. Drink from 2018.”

91    Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Overlying deep limestone, this vineyard sits at the entrance to the medieval village of St.-Emilion. The 2012 (80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc) is rich and full-bodied, with intense minerality, good acidity, plenty of black cherry, raspberry and brambleberry fruit, and a briary Zinfandel-like character intermixed with the crushed rock and spice. This is an impressively endowed St.-Emilion. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.”

91    James Suckling
“A rich and deep wine with berry, chocolate and spice character. Medium body, fine tannins and a silky finish. Pretty texture. Best after 2016.”

91    Wine Spectator
“This has broad shoulders, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit, well-layered with ganache, menthol and black licorice notes. Has polish on the surface, but there’s serious graphite-driven cut lurking through the finish. Let this stretch out a bit in the cellar. Best from 2017 through 2025. 300 cases made.”
