Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"This sexy, up-front, exuberant, dark ruby/purple-tinged St.-Emilion displays opulent aromas and flavors of espresso roast, chocolate, and kirsch liqueur. Ripe, deep, and fleshy, it is meant to be drunk during its first decade of life."
90 Points

"A firm, balanced wine, typical of the slightly austere mineral side of the Graves. The tannins are tight, binding a core of fresh berry fruits to bright and fresh acidity. The wine is balanced, finishing with spice and dark chocolate. "
89 Points

"Ripe berry and cherry aromas with hints of vanilla follow through to a medium body, with firm tannins and a clean finish. Bright and clean. Best after 2010. "
88 Points
