92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007

($60; 50% cabernet franc, 42% merlot and 8% petit verdot) Good medium-deep red. Blacker fruits on the nose, along with chocolate and tarry oak nuances. Lush and dense in texture but with excellent energy and lift; this round, sweet blend really expands in the mouth. I found Saint-Emilion-like notes of plum, milk chocolate, coffee, spices and dried herbs, all firmed by subtle minerality. Not at all a blockbuster, but this boasts a very suave middle palate. Finishes with broad, ripe tannins and subtle persistence. Like the Tapteil bottling, this showed an explosive chocolatey character with extended aeration while maintaining its firm spine. This was made mostly from Tapteil and Ciel du Cheval fruit, with a bit of Klipsun merlot added.
