Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"Tiny yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare have produced a wine with terrific fruit intensity, a moderately tannic structure, and hints of chocolate, cedar, spice box, and earth. Although not as big as I expected given the vintage, it is well-made and impressively endowed.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"

"Alluring aromas and flavors of toast, mineral and roasted plum are expressive and energetic in this rich, modern red. The texture is broad yet polished, with well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity."
91 Points

"Bright medium ruby. Expressive, inviting aromas of black raspberry and minerals. Dense, sweet and seamless, with lovely energy and definition to its its dark raspberry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with smooth, suave tannins and slow-building length. The best result to date from this chateau, which is owned by Stephan von Neipperg, proprietor of Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte. This wine aged on its lees for 17 months before being bottled without fining or filtration."
