Aromas of blueberries, with a toasted oak and meat character. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a berry, toasted oak finish. Rich, yet subtle. Needs at least three or four years to come together.
The finest wine yet made by this estate run by Stephane Derenoncourt's wife, Christine, this blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. It exhibits copious aromas of blueberries, raspberries, asphalt, truffles, charcoal and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied and powerful with low acidity, excellent freshness and precision, and deep, glycerin-imbued, high octane flavors, the vintage’s tell-tale voluptuousness and opulence are nicely wedded to a sense of freshness and delineation. Drink this beautiful St.-Emilion over the next two decades. (RP)
*Cellar Selection* Deliciously perfumed wine, full of the ripest fruit along with smoky tannins. It revels in the bright fruit flavors that add to the pleasure. This is a wine that will develop relatively quickly, although it will age as well.
A dense, fleshy style, with mouthfilling raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes, layered with apple wood, espresso and loam. There's plenty of weight on the finish, with a slightly chunky feel and a lovely echo of dark fruit and tobacco. Best from 2014 through 2024.
