Community Tasting Note

  • Chomsky wrote: 65 points

    November 26, 2010 - This wine exemplifies everything that is wrong and offensive about international-style wines. This historic domaine was purchased in the early 1980s by the former CEO of Cartier, who brought his nouveau-riche sensibilities to the property and promptly enlisted Michel Rolland to oversee the wine-making. Accordingly, the wine consists of massively extracted, "physiologically ripe" black fruit, monstrous amounts of very expensive new oak -- and not a shred of Cahors terroir anywhere to be found. Instead, there is only the undeniable and outsized imprint of Michel Rolland.
