“Dense ruby almost black robe that is clear and bright. Powerful, multi-layered nose with aromas of roasting, spice, cloves, cinnamon and black fruit. Silky on the palate with steadfast black fruit, vanilla, and plum and blackcurrant marmalade flavours. Nicely balanced body with lovely length.”

The Great Ranking of Bordeaux Wines, Vintage 2007

“Deep garnet red robe. Traditional style with ripe aromas of dry fruit, Agen prunes and dried figs. Slightly soft flavours. Clean on the palate, medium length, nicely balanced.”
Marcus Del Monego – Tasted Journal

“Dark robe, a big wine on the palate, fleshy with silky, structured tannins, having evolved outstandingly; a great achievement.”
2011 Dussert-Gerber Wine Guide

“Weather conditions with a lot of rainfall and an extraordinary Indian summer contributed to grape ripening. Harvesting dates stretched in optimal conditions. Here, the 2007 is ready to drink, the tannins are already mellow and the finish is fresh and slightly animal. It will suit a not too spicy dish of meat in sauce or a truffle-based concoction.”
Alain Chameyrat
