Very powerful spicy wine with rounded fruit despite the dense tannins. It has juicy acidity, finishing with a dark, dry aftertaste.
Fresh and clean with fine tannins and a blueberry and orange peel character. Peaches too. Long and very pretty. One of the best Quinaults for a long time. 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet France and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This property have turned out a finesse-styled 2010 with loads of blueberry and raspberry fruit as well as hints of pomegranate, crushed rock and damp earth. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is medium-bodied and stylish, not a blockbuster by any means, but a wine of finesse to drink over the next 10-12 years. This old property was brought to life by Dr. Alain Raynaud and then sold to the owners of Cheval Blanc.
Bright, medium red-ruby. Cool aromas of crushed bluberry, bitter chocolate, scorched earth and licorice. Suave, smooth and fine-grained, with harmonious acidity framing and lifting the flavors of pungent red berries, tobacco and wild resiny herbs. Finishes with broad tannins and intriguing hints of herbs and earth. This property is now under the same LVMH ownership as Cheval Blanc and it shows in the wine's silky texture and medicinal reserve. My sample was more complex and layered with extended aeration, without losing any of its verve. 91(+?) points
Very fresh, with a pure essence of raspberry and kirsch racing along, laced with an enticing red licorice note that drives through the finish. Rather direct, but well put together and nicely defined, with a finesse and minerality that many other St.-Emilions don't have. Drink now through 2020.
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bought by Cheval Blanc in 2008 just before the harvest and now transformed. Sandy gravels right in Libourne. Organic. Very opulent and rich on the nose. Then admirably fresh on the palate. Lots of zest and really strong liquorice. Very fine tannins there on the finish. Really spicy and vibrant. Almost seems to fizz! Long. The Cheval team have lowered the proportion of new oak and really transformed the vineyard, and the wine! 17/20 points.
