Winemaker Notes

The wine is spicy sweet spices such as cloves. Fine, very airy, both elegant and concentrated. The tannins, the aromas of blackberry and very ripe raspberry enhance the long finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
(the crop level here was a tiny 13 hectoliters per hectare, according to Yves Confuron, and just 9.5 in 2013): Good bright, full red. Captivating, complex aromas of red raspberry, redcurrant, flowers, minerals and mocha. A step up in sweetness and thickness from the Grand Clos des Epenots, but with lively pepper and spice notes giving the wine very good definition and energy. The biggest and longest of these 2012s, finishing with ripe tannins and a lingering note of iron. Very concentrated wine with superb potential.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Very spicy, with incense and green olive notes dominating the aromas, featuring cherry and currant flavors lurking in the background. A tannic version, gaining harmony with air and a chalky, mouthcoating feel on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. 50 cases imported.
BH 93
Reduction completely dominates the nose at present. There is plenty of wood influence to the broad-shouldered and quite concentrated flavors that exude a fine minerality on the powerful and impressively long finish though here again there is enough bitterness today that it at least poses the question as to whether it will age out in time. My range offers the benefit of the doubt.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
