‘A wine with a beautiful concentration of fruit and depth. Full body with fully integrated tannins and a long, long finish. A touch of decadence. Superb for the vintage. Better in 2017.’ – James Suckling,, 93/100

‘This is rather broad-shouldered, with a cloak of roasted vanilla and bittersweet cocoa out front, followed by a solid core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit. A streak of licorice runs through the finish, revealing a buried chalky spine. Rather closed today, with the structure winning out in the end. Best from 2016 through 2026.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100

‘Slight development at the rim. Dark, savoury and roasted on the nose. Rich and black- and red-fruited but super-refreshing on the palate. Finesse and length to the fruit and just a slight sour note on the finish, like elderberries. Pretty firm tannins at the moment. 2017-2026’ – Julia Harding MW,, 17/20

‘This dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 exhibits a stunning bouquet of black fruits, spring flowers and confiture of cherries, raspberries, spice and earth. Complete from beginning to end, this medium-bodied 2011 does not possesses as much power as the 2005, 2009 or 2010, but it is a highly successful effort for the vintage. Moreover, it can be drunk early on as it is a delicious, complex St.-Emilion that should last 10-15 years. This is a final blend of Merlot, and Cabernet Franc cropped at 21 hectoliters per hectare. 2014-2029’ – Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate, 90/100
