97James Suckling

Very attractive aromas of currants, blackberries, bark and dried mushroom follow through to a full body with firm, fine tannins that are round and creamy-textured. Pretty finish.

96-98Jeb Dunnuck

...a ripe, blockbuster bouquet of black fruits, smoked earth, spicy oak, and graphite. One of the ripe, powerful wines that still stays light and graceful, it’s full-bodied, has ripe tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish.

95+ -97+ The Wine Advocate

...with gregarious notes of blueberry pie, plum pudding, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries with hints of eucalyptus, cinnamon stick, cloves and unsmoked cigars plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied, taut and muscular, the palate has a rock-solid structure of firm, velvety tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long with loads of mineral sparks.

94-96Vinous / IWC

...a ripe and generous bouquet with precocious red cherry, boysenberry, fig and violet aromas that are thankfully well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins that frame the multi-layered dark cherry and cassis fruit, allied with a fine balance and probably the most precise finish... Superb.

16Jancis Robinson

Super-ripe and pure cassis, like Ribena. Intensely fruity nose. Ripe, generous, lots of toasty oak and vanilla so quite sweet overall in fruit and oak. Deep, smooth texture...


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.
