Winemaker's Notes

Undoubtedly the flagship of the Aubert vineyards since over a century. This unique terroir, one of the few located on the limestone plateau on the outskirts of the village of Saint-Emilion, produces a Grand Cru Classé of international renown with subtle and mellow aromas.

Critical Acclaim

"Very concentrated, with blackberry, coffee bean and vanilla. Full-bodied, with lots of pretty fruit, velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Slightly pushed, but this should come together with bottle age. A powerful young red. Best after 2013. "
92 Points

"An outstanding sleeper of the vintage, the 2005 may turn out to be one of the finest examples yet of this modern-styled St.-Emilion. Nicely oaked, ripe but not over-ripe, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet scents of pain grille, kirsch liqueur, and black currants. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and rich, with good glycerin as well as freshness, and a long, heady finish, this succulent offering should be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
Range: 90-92"
