Tasting Notes:

90 points "Deep and dark, with lots of crushed berries and meat on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a mineral, berry aftertaste. Serious wine. From the makers of the La Mondotte. Best after 2006." Best 2006-

90 points "The outstanding 2000 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a glorious nose of creosote, licorice, blackberry and cassis liqueur, medium to full body, tremendous texture, and impressive ripe fruit. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending time in 80% new French oak, on its lees, with frequent batonnage as well as micro-oxygenation. This is serious stuff as well as a sleeper of the vintage...This large estate, with a fabulous castle on the property, consists of 106 acres planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt in the background, this is a property to take seriously."
