Tasting Notes

Aromas of currant and blueberries with minerals and flowers as well. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a lovely integrated tannin structure. It shows depth and beauty. Better in 2016.

Score: 93James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2013

A major sleeper of the vintage, this under-the-radar Pauillac from the owners of Pichon Longueville Baron comes from a 42-acre vineyard, and the blend is divided equally between two grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Classic smoky barbecue notes intermixed with cassis, forest floor and cedar jump from the glass of this dense purple, thick, unctuously textured, rich and heady wine, which can be drunk in 3-4 years. Moreover, it should last for up to two decades. This is normally not too expensive a wine, since consumers do not follow it closely, so readers should take note.

Score: 90Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013

Good bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of black cherry, licorice, minerals, cigar box and cedary oak. Juicy and fine-grained, showing unusual clarity and class for this Pauillac. A lovely balance of sweetness and acidity gives this wine plenty of early personality. Finishes with suave, building tannins and very good energy. Less austere than usual for this bottling, but this has the balance and guts for 10 to 15 years of development in bottle. (A second bottle, which I scored 89 points, was equally rich but less refined, showing notes of game and fresh blood.)
