Winemaker's Notes

Deep, dark red color. A great olfactory complexity, underlined with spicy flavors on a ripe fruit background and sublimated by a exceptional freshness. After a powerful attack with a supple and meaty chew, the long finish highlighted by a delicious sweetness confirms an exceptional vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark in color, with aromas of raspberry, currant and a hint of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Comes up a little short, but this is stylish. Best after 2012."
89 Points

"I had hoped this offering would turn out even better, but it is still a tasty, well-made Bordeaux that represents reasonably good value in this super-expensive vintage. Deep ruby to the rim, it offers up scents of damp earth, black currants, cherries, licorice, and herbs, medium body, moderate tannin, and 10-15 years of longevity "
