91-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013
(made with "a lot of fruit from Larnage," which has heavily granitic soils; aged in all new demi-muids): Opaque purple. Sexy, oak-spiced black and blue fruit aromas show very good energy and pick up a floral nuance with air. Sappy, penetrating and spicy, offering intense cassis and blueberry flavors and a jolt of cracked pepper. Smooth tannins come on late and give shape to a long, appealingly sweet finish. Desmeure told me that the average age of the vines that provided the fruit for this wine is around 85 years.
