- Tasting Notes
This elegant 2011 offers notes of sweet currants, cherries, spice box and earth along with medium body and a soft, round style. The wine narrows out in the finish. Consume it over the next 5-6 years.

Bright ruby-red. Strongly scented strawberry, cherry pit and raspberry aromas, with suave floral accents derived from calcaire. Focused and concentrated, with nicely integrated acidity lifting the red fruit and licorice flavors. The finish is tangy and long, with rising tannins remaining just this side of hard.

This shows lots of energy and beauty. Full body with lively fruit, tannins and acidity. Intense. Impressive. People need to understand where this is: just next to Canon. Better in 2017.
– James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com, Score: 91
Frankly fleshy, with plum sauce, currant paste and crushed fig notes, lined with hefty toast and a thick plum skin edge. Delivers fruit and grip, but this comes off as slightly heavy in the end. Might stretch out a bit with cellaring, but seems aimed at fans of the pumped-up style. Best from 2015 through 2019.
