95Jeb Dunnuck

Rocking amounts of red and black currants, chalky minerality, violets, camphor, new leather, and, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully balanced Saint-Emilion. With ripe tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish...

93James Suckling

Sweet-berry, coffee and mushroom aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a juicy finish.

92Wine Enthusiast

...great fruit, rich tannins and lots of fine acidity...dark and concentrated but with great.

91The Wine Advocate

...strides confidently out of the glass with bold notes of blackberry preserves, plum pudding and black raspberries, plus suggestions of charcoal, tapenade and wild mushrooms with a waft of bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is laden with juicy black fruits, supported by plush tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and earthy.

90Vinous / IWC

...nose of blackberry and bilberry fruit...nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Very pure in style, and there are absolutely no rough edges here. Almost citrus-fresh toward the finish, with veins of blood orange on the aftertaste. Very fine.


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.
