    July 3, 2014 - Charry oak aromas. Dirty red and black fruit. No.

    July 1, 2014 - This wine surprised me. Mushroom, earth, and pencil nose. It is fresh, vibrant, young, tannic, chewy, thick, deep, long, structured, balanced, and beautiful. Bravo Monseiur Magrez.

  • Merzbow wrote:

    March 28, 2014 - Lots of delicious, thick Merlot here but the tannins are very prickly and obtrusive, something that seems to be a theme with recent 2010s. I would cellar this for 10 years (as a point of comparison, the 2000 Fombrauge is drinking wonderfully now).

  • Kris G Does not like this wine: (88 points)

    December 27, 2013 - the wine hasn't settled down yet and it has an unpleasant aftertaste

    November 14, 2013 - Tasted at TWM during 2010 Bordeaux tasting.
    Delicious, but needs time to unwind before ready to drink (2018-2028)
    On sale at $38
