Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Fine fruit and texture. Generous but elegant at the same time. Has the class of top years. A consistent performer.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Lovely aromatics of violets, hints of ripe, red berries/cherries. Nice fruit weight with soft, rounded tannins. Not that complex; perfect for early drinking.

    This up and coming estate is fashioning dense, powerful wines. The black/purple-colored 2000 is a sleeper of the vintage. Revealing aromas of wood smoke, iron, blackberries, and cassis, this full-bodied, layered, powerful, muscular St.-Emilion has some tannin to shed, but its finish reveals considerable persistence. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.
