Winemaker's Notes

This late-ripening vintage has produced a powerful, deep-colored wine, which displays great freshness and fruit finesse. This is one of Saint Emilion's great classics.

Critical Acclaim

"This estate seems to be going places, making in 2004 an impressively balanced wine that seems to walk a fine line just the right side of superripeness with consummate ease. It is elegant, yet powerful, dominated by a seamless combination of blackberry jelly fruits and dark smoky tannins."
93 Points

"Subtle aromas of forest fruit, meat and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a delicate berry, chocolate and earth aftertaste. Well done for the vintage. Best after 2009. "
90 Points

"A soft, fleshy cassis note intermixed with plum, fig, and truffle characteristics are present in this round, easy-going, medium-bodied St.-Emilion. While it does not possess the power, richness, or remarkable concentration of its siblings, the 2003 and 2005, it is a noteworthy success for this vintage. Consume it now and over the next 10-12 years."
