Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Blueberry and blackberry, with hints of sliced mushrooms. Full body, with velvety tannins and a soft textured finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2001 Vintage) Red-ruby. Slightly rustic aromas of plum, game and flowers. Cooler and a bit medicinal in the mouth, with modest flesh and sweetness. There's no lack of intensity here, but this cru bourgeois could us...

    Good medium ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and game, with a liqueur-like exotic quality. Tightly wound and penetrating; in a rather brutal stage today, and not showing the lushness or sweetness of the vintage. Finishes firmly tannic, with a note of licorice.
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Classic cassis/cedar Medoc bouquet, quite dry and restrained. Fine fruit and good elegant wine, shows elegance, depth and finesse. Drink 2-10 years.
