50/50 M/CF in 2014 whereas 60/40 is more typical Vivid attractive nose of forest fruit and lilac. Ripe and dense with plum skins and chocolate. Concentrated and grippy with mineral grip all the way through and bone dry on the finish.

Score: 92 - 95 Albany Vintners

This is dense and compacted with pretty fruits, ultra fine tannins and a pure and intense finish. The excellent quality of the cabernet franc really shows here. Lightly salty with citrusy acidity. Chalky undertone. Half cabernet franc and half merlot. So about 10% more franc than normal.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc, picked 2-22 October. Very dark crimson. Not very expressive on the nose though there seems to be great density underneath. And then almost painful concentration. Verging towards Pavie, tar stew with lots of acidity. It may evolve into something lovely but for the moment it’s very hard work. Very dry end. Masses of effort has been put into this but it is not user-friendly at present.

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2025-2040

Features base notes of bittersweet ganache and smoldering tobacco, with dark plum, currant and fig fruit flavors. Despite the charcoal thread, this is lush and integrated, showing no aggressive edges at all. The tobacco accent chimes in at the end for added effect.

A wonderful finish to this wine with a full body. Compacted and tight with beautiful ripe fruit and mineral undertones. Some walnut character too.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Juicy and dense, with lots of blueberry, dark plum and blackberry fruit, studded with anise and backed by a lightly brambly finish. Hedonistic and engaging, this should be fun to watch fill out fully.

Lots of mineral, chalk and salt character with dark fruits. Full and powerful with firm tannins and a long finish. Compacted and tight with wonderful density and intensity.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

A beauty in the making, with gorgeously pure red currant and raspberry fruit, laced with bergamot and incense accents. A very fine chalky thread knits everything beautifully. Shows pristine balance and gorgeous minerality. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 94 - 97 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

This is powerful and rich with a very fruity richness. Full and soft with a lovely density and core of fruit. Soft and sexy.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

A singed quality to the nose and then much lighter and more transparent on the palate. Chewy and vivacious – although very drying indeed on the end. Really green and tough on the end. Sorry – this is just not my style. And because it has not the sweet portiness up front, I’m not quite sure who it will appeal to. Maybe it just needs (a lot of) time?

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2027-2040

Ripe and showy, featuring exuberant raspberry, plum and boysenberry fruit, carried by well-integrated grip. This has spine, but remains lush and velvety through the finish, with the fruit echoing.

Score: 91 - 94 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

A wonderful Canon with fabulous finesse and class. Full-bodied yet refined and polished. It touches your senses. Shows Right Bank made excellent wines in 2014!

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Mid to deep crimson. Full, opulent nose. Sweet start and then a little pinched on the end – there isn’t the broad sweep of fruit on the palate that was suggested by the nose. Correct but very introvert. One of the more youthful St-Émilions.

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2032

Ripe but brightly defined, with damson plum, violet and bitter cherry notes, backed by a lively sanguine hint. The racy finish shows some flashy aspects, giving this good range.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
