International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($46-$55) Good deep red-ruby. Captivating aromas of black raspberry, violet, minerals, smoke and nutty oak. Fat, broad and opulent but not overly sweet; manages to retain its typical aromatic quality even in this hot year, no doubt partly due to the fact that this wine gets minimal racking. Wonderfully easy to drink already and probably best suited for consuming over the next seven or eight years.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

A terrific St.-Emilion, the 2003 boasts blockbuster power and tremendous richness, yet also freshness and surprising elegance for such a hot year. A dense purple color is followed by a glorious nose of espresso roast, sweet blackberry jam, plums, and figs. Full-bodied, rich, and multilayered, with tremendous purity as well as length, it should be drinkable early in life, yet last for 15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Thick and spicy, with lots of fruit, almost jammy but racy. Full-bodied, soft and seductive. This is very serious indeed. Exciting stuff. This small producer makes fine handmade wines.
