Critical Acclaim

"A spectacular jewel from the Garcin family, this small vineyard near Haut-Bergey consists of 15 acres planted with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of blackberries, cassis, graphite and charcoal embers that cut a broad, medium to full-bodied swath across the palate. It is another 2011 that proves the surprisingly high quality of the wines from Pessac-Leognan and Graves in this vintage as well as the qualitative commitments of the Garcin family. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. "
93 Points

"Deep ruby. Rather brooding aromas of dark plum, cassis and minerals; less floral than usual for this wine. Enters clean and juicy but also dense, showing rich flavors of minerally blackcurrant and sweet spices. Finishes long and clean, with a light touch owing to its attractive acid lift. A superb wine in the making--one of the best wines of Pessac-Leognan this year--but it will need time."
93 Points

"Dense and broad-shouldered, this carries a toasted frame, offering fig, currant and espresso notes at the core for balance. Youthfully raw and backward today, with a loamy edge that holds sway through the finish. A powerful rendering in this vintage, cutting an imposing figure. Best from 2017 through 2030. 500 cases made."
