Tasting Notes

96-97 points James Suckling: "Very chewy, with wonderful blueberry and mineral character. Hints of mint too. Full and super classy. Love the texture of the tannins. Hyper-refined in texture." 94-97 points Tanzer's IWC: "Deep ruby-purple. Perfumed aromas of strawberry, spicy plum and black cherry. Enters fresh, dense and juicy, with lovely balance to the sweet, syrupy black fruit flavors and lively acidity that extend the rich aftertaste. The long, clean finish features lingering notes of violet and blackcurrant and extremely polished tannins. A great wine and one of the stars of the vintage in 2010..." 93-96 points Spectator: "A flashy, modern style, with lots of dark fig, anise and graphite notes, pushed by more black currant sauce and tar. Ample toast runs through the finish, but this has plenty of raw material." 93-95+ points Parker: "...Consistently beautiful wines and that includes his sensational 2010...Subtle notions of smoke, graphite, oak, black cherries and blackberries jump from the glass of this impressively perfumed claret. Medium to full-bodied, strikingly elegant and less thick and intense than a structured vintage such as 2005, the 2010 possesses remarkably sweet tannin (sweeter than the 2005) as well as a full-bodied, long finish. It should be drinkable at an early age and keep for 20-25 years."

    ** Tasted three times, and it was always in top form.

    Yes, this is made in a ripe, extracted style, but it also shows balance and structure. Flavors include bittersweet chocolate, clove and crushed blackberries.

    A must buy! Plush and seamless, so smooth and seductive. Chocolate, dark fruits and velvety tannins caress the palate.
