($33-$45) Red-ruby. Cool aromas of currant, mocha, graphite, tobacco and herbs; I don't find this wine's typical Vosne-like black fruit and floral character today. Supple and moderately broad but could use a bit more definition and eclat A moderately ripe Rol Valentin, finishing with dusty tannins and a lightly peppery quality.

About This Producer


A favorite from St. Emilion, this wine offers that complex matrix of accessibility and age-worthiness inherent to this appellation. Since Eric Prissette a former football player - European style - bought the property in 1994, there has been an intense focus on producing "the most magnificent, flamboyant, and concentrated wines possible." To that end, the wine sees frequent punch-downs during fermentation, malolactic fermentation and aging in 100% new oak on the lees, and micro-oxygenation. The high caliber of these wines contrasts sharply their thoroughly reasonable prices. This is an 85-90% Merlot production, so expect a plush entry and roundness of palate.
