The outstanding 2000 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a glorious nose of creosote, licorice, blackberry and cassis liqueur, medium to full body, tremendous texture, and impressive ripe fruit. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending time in 80% new French oak, on its lees, with frequent batonnage as well as micro-oxygenation. This is serious stuff as well as a sleeper of the vintage...This large estate, with a fabulous castle on the property, consists of 106 acres planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt in the background, this is a property to take seriously.
Saturated medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, chocolate and game, plus an exotic whiff of apricot. Sweet, supple and open in the mouth, with seamless, exotic fruit flavors of noteworthy intensity. The big, broad, firm tannins from the chalky soil give this solid structure for development in bottle. Finishes with excellent persistence.
Deep and dark, with lots of crushed berries and meat on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a mineral, berry aftertaste. Serious wine. From the makers of the La Mondotte. Best after 2006.
