TASTING NOTES

"This extraordinary terroir, now exploited by Edouard Moueix, the son of Christian, seems to be coming to life in a dramatic fashion. Never a hedonistic wine, but very intellectual, the 2009 suggests a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with black currants and black cherries. Still somewhat closed, medium to full-bodied, and impressive rather than seductive, this is a structured wine that needs to be forgotten for at least a decade, and then drunk over the following 30+ years. If readers are looking for the quintessential example of a terroir-dominated wine, this is Lesson 101 in terroir." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #199

"Love the soft and velvety tannin with the milk chocolate and fruit character. Full and silky. Long and delicious. So fine. Best wine from this estate in decades. Maybe ever. Best after 2017." JamesSuckling.com

"Offers lovely interplay between cherry and raspberry fruit, with darker plum and graphite notes and a perfumy Lapsang souchong tea edge. Very racy and detailed, with a long, mouthwatering, mineral-driven finish that really stretches out as it airs. Best from 2014 through 2026. 1,500 cases made." Wine Spectator
