"This delivers a direct beam of lightly mulled plum and cherry fruit, framed by a hint of tobacco, with a twinge of bitter cherry on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now. 700 cases imported. –JM " (WS)

"One of the few unclassified growth Pauillacs, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot displays spicy, cedary black currant fruit, medium body and a soft, easygoing personality in a style begging for consumption over the next 8-10 years." (WA)

"Aromas of blueberries and flowers, follow though to a full body, with soft and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious already. Best in 2016." (JS)

"92-94 Barrel sample. A rounded wine, its tannins submerged into the ripe fruits. It feels soft, and there is just a bite of alcohol. The structure is soft, generous, opulent."(WE)

"Light, easy to drink, affordable Pauillac without faults and a spicy, cassis and cedar personality." (JL)
