"Revealing a style similar to Pavie-Macquin, this backward, dense purple-colored St.-Emilion exhibits a liquid limestone-like character along with abundant floral notes, considerable depth yet a structured as well as tannic, backward, pure personality. It requires another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last 15-20 years thereafter." (WA)

"Medium/full bodied, sensuous, silky and fresh, with loads of ripe, juicy, cherries and earth. No need for further aging here. The finish has a hint of dusty tannins in the endnote. 93 points - Tasted May 10, 2017" (JL)
