95Vinous / IWC

Wonderfully perfumed, with striking inner sweetness and layers of fruit... On the palate, though, the wine is still quite deep and almost shockingly concentrated. Opulent dark fruit, grilled herb and chocolate flavors all flesh out effortlessly. A sheen of new French oak brings it all together and gives the wine its distinctive feel...deeply expressive, hauntingly beautiful Saint-Émilion. In a word: superb!

89-92Stephen Tanzer

Exotic dark raspberry, chocolate liqueur and smoky oak on the nose and palate. Lush, sweet. Round, sexy and plump but with no excess weight. In fact, this is rather suave and smooth, with good inner-palate energy.

17Jancis Robinson

Attractive freshness on the nose. Round and rather gorgeous. Throbs underneath with very round fruit.


France, Bordeaux, St.-Émilion

Saint-Émilion is on the east side of the Dordogne River. At 13,400 acres it is one of Bordeaux’s largest appellations, and perhaps its most picturesque. It is also home to what has been called “the garagiste” movement of upstart, tradition-defying winemakers who produce artisanal wines in styles that are unconventional for the appellation. The village of Saint-Émilion dates from the middle ages and it sits on low hills, surrounded by ancient walls. Like its neighbor Pomerol, Saint-Émilion was not included in the famous Bordeaux classification system of 1855. But a century later a ranking system was put in place, and unlike the classification system for the Medoc, the Saint-Émilion system is reviewed every ten years, meaning that estates can be upgraded or downgraded. There are three rankings: Grand Cru Classé, Premier Grand Cru Classé B and Premier Grand Cru Classé A, with the final ranking being the best. Such legendary Saint-Émilion estates as Châteaux Ausone and Cheval-Blanc are Premier Grand Cru Classé A, along with Châteaux Pavie and Angélus, both added to the classification in 2012. Wines in this appellation are primarily Merlot, mixed with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
