88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot Woodsy tree bark, mineral, and beef aroms top the big black currant fruit on the nose here which is a bit unevolved and almost jammy yet retains lots of fresh wild berry fruit. This is a bit angular but slender on entry with nicely judged, polished tannins. It’s a big wine with nice power and depth, rich with ,dusty fruit, briary and blue plummy on the palate. Built more on richness and power, this turns a little chewy on the firm finish which is long but shows more oak sweetness than the Clos de betz and is a touch hot as well. It’s still a remarkable wine, that might just need more time but for me it lacks some of the purity and seamlessness the Clos de betz displays. 93pts

Concentrated and effusively complex, this wine boasts cassis, blueberry, pencil lead and garrigue that linger on the palate. A satisfyingly rigid structure is supported by a pleasant, balanced generosity of fruit. This Bordeaux blend is always good for long-term cellaring.

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Merlot this red has an expressive perfume of sandalwood, truffle, espresso, violets, and blackberry. With well-integrated fine-grained tannins, this sweetly-fruited, dense, complex offering will benefit from 6-8 years of cellaring.

Blended with 9% malbec, 8% merlot, 3% petit verdot and 2% cab franc) Bright, deep ruby-red. Musky, minerally, spicy aromas of blackberry, blueberry, leather and tree bark. Quite penetrating on the palate, with terrific intensity and cut to the black cherry and currant flavors. Denser and larger-scaled than the Clos de Betz. This, too, finishes with excellent cut, growing sweeter and longer as it opens in the glass. There's firm tannic spine here but no impression of dryness.
