A parcel of almost 100% Cabernet Franc gives this perfumed, classy wine. It's very structured, mineral-textured and darkly dense. Powerful and concentrated, this intense wine will develop into a major statement.
...A host of dark cherry, plum and smoke notes gradually emerge in the glass... I am quite drawn by this fabulous Saint-Emilion that touches Angelus on one side and Canon on the others.
...plenty of raspberry & blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower garden notes... with stunning elegance, purity and minerality... quality of the fruit, the complex nuances, and overall equilibrium make for a very special Bordeaux...
It has heaps of fruit and lots of dimension and class. A splendid recruit to the ranks of the super-stars. - Clive Coates, MW
