(From 2008 Vintage) Fine fruit and texture. Generous but elegant at the same time. Has the class of top years. A consistent performer.
(From 2007 Vintage) Deep, garnet-red hue. Refined nose of vanilla wood with ripe fruit in the background. Powerful, silky mouthfeel with fine-grained wood which does not overshadow the fruit.
Wine & SpiritsThis 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.
