Winemaker's Notes

The wine is composed with a majority of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, to which are added notes of Petit Verdot and Côt. These vines are old 20 to 40 years old. They are worked manually and traditionally, and produce an excellent wine with an aromatic bouquet and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This has been one of the most reliable wines in Bordeaux over the last 30+ years, and I have enjoyed many vintages of it. It sells for a song, and the 2009 may turn out to be the best they have ever made. This inky purple-colored wine offers up notes of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and forest floor that seem to have more in common with a classified growth than a petite chateau. Medium-bodied, luscious, and rich, this is a beauty to drink over the next 10 years. Range 88-90."
