Tasting Notes

**Note: from a 1.37 ha parcel of 60+ year old vines situated close to the Château; vinified with 25% whole clusters**
A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off admirably pure aromas of various dark berries, pungent earth, floral and soft spice nuances. There is good power and volume but as with several wines in the range in 2012 the supporting tannins are notably fine and almost invisible at present as the abundant dry extract coats the palate and pushes the sense of structure to the background on the gorgeously long finish. This isn't exactly robust but it is very firmly structured which together with the excellent power and punch make this is a seriously good effort.

Score: 93/95Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, January 2014

(75% new oak): Medium red color. Strong soil tones to the aromas of dark cherry, red licorice and truffle. Voluptuous on entry, then quite closed in the middle, showing less primary fruit and more earth than the Echézeaux or Grands-Echézeaux bottlings today. Turns more taut on the back end, showing strong tannins that will clearly require extended cellaring. ""Our real vin de garde par excellence,"" notes winemaker Michel Mallard. I may be underestimating this wine's potential quality. 2026 - 2040
