Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 89/100
A dense ruby/purple color is followed by an excellent Pauillac offering plenty of black currant and cherry fruit as well as spice box notes, good acidity and ripe tannin. Medium-bodied, rich, pure and textured, it is an impressive, forward, precociously styled effort to enjoy over the next 10-15 years. April 2014 Issue 212, The Wine Advocate

Vintage Description

The 2011 vintage was influenced by an inversed climate: a very dry and warm spring followed by a rather humid and cool summer. Perfectly ripe grapes were harvested from every plot. The Merlot was harvested from 13th to 21st September, whilst the Cabernet Sauvignon came in between 23rd and 29th September. The Grand vin is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot.

After hand-picking and selection of the grapes on the vines, they are de-stemmed and sorted once more. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks. After blending, the wine is aged from 18 to 24 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new.
