  • This is great stuff, well made and a good QPR.
    Nose is quite scented, fragrant with red fuits, moka, some earth and cedar.
    The palate shows richness and concentration. Nice flavors of black cherries with some chocolate, tobacco and a bit of herbs.
    Tannins are plush and the ending is very long. Absolutely delish and will get even better in 5-10-15 years.

  • Superbe Bordeaux de ce beau millésime qu'est 2009.
    Rond, ample, concentré et fort complexe.
    Nez sur le moka, les fruits noires et un pue la terre.
    En bouche, belle texture satiné, un beau touché. Des cerises au kirsh, du tabac et du chocolat. De beaux tannins assez serrés avec de la sève.
    Très long et assez bine équilibré. En a encor pas mal sous la pédale.
    Encore une fois très beau Bordeaux et un RQP du tonnerre de ce beau Château.

  • Trop concentré et trop mûr, ce vin n'a ni l'équilibre ni la finesse qu'on attend d'un cru classé. L'acidité est hélas trop faible pour compenser les 15 % d'alcool affichés. A boire à 15 degrés pour ne pas être saturé et fatigué par cette confiture ! Je ne vois pas ce vin bien évoluer.

  • not in its best fase right now, but the Merlot makes it already quite accessible

  • Consumed over two nights. Tight and not very forthcoming on the first night, even with air and Vinturi. Opened up nicely overnight. Fine tannins and nice acidic grip keep this interesting. Very full on the palate, nice and round, reflecting the high Merlot content. Needs a few more years in bottle to come around.
