Expert Reviews

87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

Deep, fully saturated purple-ruby.  Herbs, coffee, blackberry and minerals on the nose.  Enters rich dense and juicy, but turns austere on the back end, finishing with moderately complex blackberry and blackcurrant flavors and good persistence.  The finish is clean and pure, no easy accomplishment due to the hail that hit the vineyards at the beginning of September.  This is very well made but lacks a little generosity.  Basil Tesseron and his father Michel did a great job in this difficult year:  stay tuned for some exciting developments at this property in the near future.
