Proprietress Juliette Becot has produced a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc that again merits high marks for a value-priced offering in 2011. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by abundant quantities of dark berry fruit intermixed with hints of white chocolate, lead pencil shavings and vanillin. Medium-bodied with good juiciness, succulence, ripe tannin and a fleshy, opulent mouthfeel and finish, it is another big time sleeper of the vintage to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.
A steely red with currant and berry character, plus hints of minerals. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Silky texture. Better in 2015.
Black core. Not very open but there's some dark chocolate and oak spice as well as dusty dark fruit. Firm grip but finely textured. Pure and clean and all in harmony. Powerful, dense and long with a nicely dry finish.
