Nose of quince, red currant and cranberry with lots of minerality. On the palate, the minerality turns a touch metallic. Flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and currant. Touch of strawberry. Crisp, dry and refreshing. 86 pts. 5/9/13 at winery

Perfumed elegant wine with an unusually high proportion of Merlot at the expense of Cabernet. Spicy fruit cake and dried fruits go with a stylish blackberry character. Complex and set for a long aging. Wine Enthusiast.

This is a Merlot year for Alexandre and his son Guillaume: the 2012 a blend o 87% Merlot 11% Cabernet Franc and just 1% Cabernet Sauvignon (the latter due to a parcel being replanted at the moment.) The nose is very well defined and lively real energy coming from the glass. There are crisp scents of blackcurrant wild strawberry and a tangible stoniness very expressive of its terroir. The palate is superb: real tension and purity here crisp acidity tensile tannins that lend this VCC edginess and race. The fruit is black rather than red with a sense of poise and superbly assimilated oak on the nervous finish. What a great Pomerol for the vintage! Tasted April 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Deep garnet color. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Layered and complex. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. Smooth and concentrated, the wine exhibits richly woven texture with dark, dense fruit on the long finish.

Very fresh with lots of brightly defined red currant damson plum anise violet and white pepper notes. The lacy but persistent structure and energetic acidity lead to a long tobacco-filled finish. Tasted non-blind.


Winemaker's Notes:

Rich flavor and supple body. Featuring a tart and raspberry-driven core that's wrapped up with vanilla, chocolate syrup, and essence of wood. Plum with notes of cedar on a lingering, velvet finish. Generous and filled with life.
