  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    (85% of the fruit is from Oakville): Bright red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of cassis, licorice and peppery herbs. Moderately fleshy and a bit rougher than the Estate bottling, with flavors of blue fruits and fresh herbs showing oaky torrefaction notes of chocolate and cocoa powder. Morlet describes this as |the most feminine of our wines| but this very young cabernet will need time in bottle to absorb its slightly edgy oak-powered tannins.

    The inky-colored 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement (100% Cabernet Sauvignon; 125 cases produced) reveals lots of sweet toasty oak, beautiful upfront black currant and licorice-infused blackberry fruit, medium to full body, low acidity and ripe tannin. Consume it over the next decade.

    Superlative chardonnay with ripe fruit, butter, almost no oak, true to the roots of its French winemaker, Luc. It would be hard to find a better chardonnay from Napa
