Winemaker's Notes

Vintage after vintage of a powerful, no-nonsense wine that also reveals lots of elegance and subtlety.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the finest cru bourgeois in the Medoc, this impeccably made 2005 exhibits notions of black olives, black currants, spice box, and cedar in its complex, classically styled bouquet. Medium-bodied with excellent purity, richness, and power, sweet tannin, beautiful fruit, and admirable depth, this is a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next decade. "
