Tasting Notes

A slightly less elegant but equally complex nose of almost exclusively red berry fruit aromas nuanced by touches of earth, underbrush and a subtle hint of game precede round, rich and generous flavors underpinned by suave tannins and a velvety and dusty finish. At present the tannins are on the chewy side and like the Latricières, this will require a certain amount of patience.

Score: 92/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, April 2007

(this is purchased wine, from a blend of old and young vines) Bright red-ruby. Spicy red cherry aroma with a floral topnote. Offers moderate stuffing but very good definition and lift, with a ripe chocolatey note. Has class but the finish shows a slight dryness and could be longer.

Score: 89/91Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, April 2007

Rather pale sample. Richly autumnal on the nose and then very angular tannin and acidity. Not the real integration and weight of fruit one might hope for. Very chewy and dry. Sandpaper stuff.
