Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Medium red. Sweet plum, cherry, mocha and espresso on the nose. Sweet and fat with fruit, with the plum and mocha flavors continuing on the palate. There's a touch of finishing dryness here but also very good plummy persistence. Very good for the vintage.

    Parker 91. Drink 2009-2019. It is remarkable what Yves Vatelot can accomplish at this estate, which is only entitled to an Appellation Bordeaux Superieur designation. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, the super-impressive 2006 boasts a dense purple color as well as a bouquet of sweet creme de cassis, spring flowers, toasty oak, and background forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, and pure with an alluring texture as well as length, it should drink nicely for 5-10 years.
