    Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90+This powerful, tannic, dense blue/purple-hued St.-Emilion will handsomely repay those with patience. It offers up a tight but promising nose of smoke, meats, creosote, black currants, blueberries, and cold, wet steel. A masculine, stern effort with a certain austerity, abundant tannin, and superb depth, purity, and richness, it should be at its peak between 2015-2025.

    excellent Bordeaux. Tanins still remain strong and should age well. lovely nose and rich berry flavor. worth buying more from this winery.
