Tasting note:
2010: This very perfumed style of wine is slightly cooler and fresher than the more opulent, glycerin-imbued 2009. Exhibiting terrific aromatics (black and red fruits, licorice, and graphite), medium to full-bodied flavors, super purity, and a long finish, it should drink nicely when young and evolve for 10-15 years, although I can’t see it ever being very long-aged. (90-93pts. Robert Parker)

Tasted: May 2011
Score: 90-93
Drink: N/A

Tasting note:
85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc helped to produce a wine that hit 13.9% alcohol. Floral, cherry blossom, anise and black cherry scents open this supple, fresh, sweet, ripe wine that finishes with spicy black raspberries in a finesse style. (91-93pts. Jeff Leve, Thewinecellarinsider.com)

Tasted: Apr. 2011
Score: 91-93
Drink: N/A

Tasting note: A fresh, open style, offering delicious raspberry and blueberry fruit, with lots of alluring spice and licorice notes, followed by a flash of fruitcake on the finish. Lengthy, with good range already. (89-92pts. JM, Wine Spectator)

Tasted: Mar. 2011
Score: 89-92
Drink: N/A

Tasting note: My best score for the estate en primeur. A success - better than the 2009 vintage. Still a little subdued on the nose but boasting fresh and ripe fruit. Mellow on entry then wonderfully aromatic and laden with taste; lovely tactile feel on the palate with a beautiful weave of tannins. Lush tasty length. Alcohol content: 14 % - pH: 3.7 - IPT: 85 (88pts. Jean-Marc Quarin)
