Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

From the owner of Chambrun and La Croix St.-Georges (Jean-Philippe Janoueix), this is an impressive debut vintage for La Confession. Made from a blend of 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it enjoyed time in open-top oak fermenters (a la Burgundy), punching of the cap, malolactic in barrel, and lees contact. A dense purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of chocolate, espresso roast, blackberry and cherry liqueur, and new oak. This expansive, full-bodied, surprisingly powerful, dense 2001 is somewhat atypical of the vintage, but it is well-endowed, gorgeously textured, and admirably pure. There is plenty of tannin in the finish, so 2-3 years of cellaring is suggested.

This a full body and healthy St. Emilion wine. Has the intrinsic Merlot nose, redcurrant and redberry as well the tomato leaf aromas. Excellent acidity and healthy tannins clearly states...drink me with food now or keep in your cellar couple of years. Very elegant and good value.

An amazing effort for debut vintage and the 2001 vintage. Notes of berries and chocolate on the nose. Very silky and likely to improve further with age
