This small estate owned by Chantal and Gerard Perse (9 plus acres planted with 43-year-old vines) is composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. In 2004, yields were a low 28-30 hectoliters per hectare, resulting in 400 cases being produced. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 offers smoky creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, crushed rock, and spring flower aromas. Opulent, flamboyant, rich, dense, and lavishly endowed, it possesses enough fruit and glycerin to nearly conceal its elevated tannin. (RP)
Red-ruby. Wild, expressive nose offers redcurrant, minerals, truffle and mocha. Supple, plump and tactile but with plenty of energy and shape thanks to the wine's mineral underpinning. This has real breadth and depth for the vintage. Finishes sexy and long, with broad, ripe tannins. (ST)
Shows bright, vivid aromas of crushed ripe strawberry, with hints of flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Refined. (JS, Web Only-2008)
