Winemaker's Notes

The harmony on the palate reveals a class of its soil and the wine has great aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Large-scale renovations to the vineyard and the advice of Patrick Valette as consultant have paid great dividends at this ancient vineyard. The wine is ripely opulent but balanced, with new wood that supports rather than dominates, and a structure that promises long aging.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"

"Full ruby-red. Perfumed, pure aromas of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Suave on entry, then pure, scented and light on its feet. Not at all a big boy in the context of the year, but this boasts lovely blackberry and floral intensity and striking minerality. Finishes firmly tannic and lively, with good licorice lift. This is better than I originally rated it, but still quite tightly wound. The '06 seems softer and drier by comparison.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points"
91 Points

"Resiny characteristics combined with notions of black cherries, cassis, herbs, and new oak emerge from this deep ruby/purple-colored 2005. Medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, and impeccably well-made, consumption during its first 10-15 years of life is recommended.
Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points"
90 Points

"Complexing elements of graphite, dusty earth and olives bring added notes of interest to the moderately rich aromas of well-ripened cherries that are the central theme of this comparatively refined claret, and that sense of refinement holds throughout despite the wine's slightly grippy last-minute tannins. While there are aspects about it that are easy to like now, the wine is still in its infancy and needs five to eight years of age."
