Winemaker's Notes

Exquisite fruit and spice aromas. On the palate, perfect harmony between structure and elegance: rich, complex and voluptuous. Very good ageing potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Mild reduction knocks down the nose and renders it difficult to properly assess. The ripe yet cool, detailed and intensely mineral-driven flavors possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the impeccably well-balanced and explosive finish. The Clos des Chênes is excellent but there is simply another dimension of depth present here."
93 Points

"Good medium red. Smoky redcurrant, leather, chocolate and spices on the nose. Round, rich and deep but quite backward today, offering a chewy texture but holding back its fruit. Best now on the sweet, broad back end, which features serious but nicely ripe tannins, a steadily building spice character and very good lift."
91 Points
