"A big, broad-shouldered wine that's rather tight today, with dense layers of linzer torte, black currant paste and fig shrouded with dark toast and ample spice. There's nice mouthfeel and length through the finish, yet this seems a touch more reticent than most at this point." (WS)

"One of the more seductive, opulent wines of St.-Emilion, the 2010 Clos Dubreuil will probably never make old bones, but it will offer irresistible drinking during its first 10 years of life. Reminiscent of another garagiste St.-Emilion, La Croix de Labrie, it possesses an explosive blockbuster personality oozing with blackberries, cassis, incense, licorice and toasty oak. Opulent, fleshy and concentrated with sweet tannin, it is made in a modern style meant for drinking during its first decade of life." (WA)

"(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc) Good, deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of cassis, licorice and flowers. Sweet, lush and deep but suave, with good lift to the merlot-driven violet, cassis and pepper flavors. Smoothly tannic and long on the vanilla-accented aftertaste. A delicious wine, offering lovely balance and a creamy mouthfeel." (IWC)

"Clos Dubreuil - Dark purple in color, with licorice, smoke, coffee, earth and spice filled aromatics gets even better with the decadent palate feel and chocolate covered, dark, black cherry finish." (JL)

"This is a caressing and refined wine blackberries and vanilla. Full and rich, with velvety tannins and good fruit on the finish.$$" (JS)
