Good deep red-ruby. High-pitched perfume of strawberry and allspice. Elegant and on the lean side but with good density and energy to its tangy red fruit and floral flavors. Very ripe but a bit youthfully medicinal, in a more traditional style. Finishes firm and focused, with classic dryness. Plenty of richness lurking, but this will need a decade in the cellar.

This big wine (nearly 15% natural alcohol) is a blend of 77% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts an opaque blue/purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of charcoal, incense, truffles, blackberry jam, black currants, raspberries and flowers. While enormous in the mouth, the limestone soils in which the grapes are grown give the wine good freshness as well as laser-like clarity and precision. Amazing to taste, this massive, super-concentrated powerhouse comes across as ethereal and almost feminine despite its extravagant fruit, density and richness. It is a modern day legend for sure!

Focused power. This muscular red shows drive, yet remains graceful, with fresh plum and currant flavors, backed by mineral, tar and floral notes. The dense texture stays fresh through the sweet, spicy finish. 1,540 cases made.
