Tasting Notes

This is a beautiful wine from this micro-estate (three acres) near the cemetery in St.-Emilion. Dense ruby/purple in color, it has pure, rich, black raspberry and black cherry fruit, a hint of minerality and stunning purity, texture and length. This is nearly impossible to find in the marketplace, but what a wonderful treasure for those lucky enough to find any. It needs a good 5-7 years of bottle age and should continue to drink well for up to 20 years afterwards. This is serious stuff.

Score: 93Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015

Plenty of outstanding fruit here with chocolate and berry character. Full body, with fine tannins and a savory finish. This is going to develop nicely. May be better than 2011.

Score: 91/92James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2013

Blending 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14% alcohol, with a pH of 3.76. Coffee bean, licorice and jammy cherries open to a silky, sensuous, lush, black cherry filled, spicy wine. The final vintage made by Sophie Fourcade.
