Winemaker's Notes

Les Chiens-Chiens (literally Dogs-Dogs) is produced from a single vineyard of Cab Franc and aged for 12 month in 3 years old barrels. From limestone and flint terroir it expresses earthiness, deep black fruits and spices.

Critical Acclaim

"Delivers mature spice, briar patch, mulled currant and braised fig notes, all matched by bright, mouthwatering acidity. A lingering tobacco note adds extra length. Solid. Drink now through 2011."
90 Points

"This shows dense flavors of black fig, black cherry and cassis, yet its fresh acidity gives the wine a vibrant, energetic feel. It's delicious now, and should gain further harmony and complexity with time."
