Tasting Notes

One of the bigger, more tannic and powerful wines of the vintage, although it is only 14.4% alcohol, which puts it well below some of the blockbusters in the Cotes de Castillon, this wine exhibits wonderfully pure black raspberry, black cherry and graphite notes intermixed with hints of cedar and licorice, in a medium to full-bodied, slightly softer and less extracted style than usual. This is another sleeper of the vintage that should drink nicely for up to a decade.

Score: 91Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), February 2013

Wonderful nose of blueberries and clay with dark berries. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a very refined and tight tannin structure. Love the quality. Long finish.

Score: 92James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2013

Licorice, truffle, jammy dark berries and chocolate open to a plush, polished, rich wine of pleasure. This will drink well young.
