Lots of crushed berry on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy yet round tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Packed with fruit and good tannins.

Madame Corrine Guisez, who owns the more famous St.-Emilion estate of Chateau Faugeres, has hit a home run with this terrific sleeper of the vintage. A large-scaled, opulently-textured, inky/purple-colored effort, it boasts a rich, sumptuous perfume of camphor, black raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. It is a rich, full-bodied wine to enjoy over the next decade.
