Tasting Notes

Exotic, as it often can be, with super-ripe mulberry and black cherry fruit to the point of near-kirsch liqueur, with notes of licorice, truffle, and forest floor, this is a full-bodied, concentrated wine with a slight tannic bite to the finish. There is good freshness, depth, and power, and despite the flamboyant aromatics, this wine needs a good 3-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 15 or more years.

Score: 93

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, RobertParker.com 01 March 2009

This micro-cuvee of 500-600 cases of 100% Merlot offers exotic pain grille notes interwoven with lavish quantities of black, blue, and red fruits, an unctuous texture, and beautiful purity as well as length. Full-bodied with velvety tannins as well as extravagant fruit, it should drink well for 20-25 years. Sadly, most consumers can neither afford nor find this stunning Pomerol.

Score: 95

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, RobertParker.com Maturity: 2007-2032 30 April 2007

Coffee bean and blackberry aromas, with hints of cedar, follow through to a full body, with sweet, ripe fruit and a chocolaty finish. Refined, this shows grace and beauty for the vintage. Best after 2012.
