90-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(54% merlot and 46% cabernet franc):  Good full ruby-red.  Expressive, nuanced nose offers red cherry, strawberry, minerals and a hint of violet.  Sweet and round on entry, then increasingly austere toward the back, with peppery and minty elements lifting the dark cherry and cassis flavors.  I noticed some bottle variation with my samples on the day I visited this chateau, so I am describing the best of the four samples I tried.  My gut feeling is that there is plenty of stuffing and pretty cabernet franc refinement here but that the wine needs to smooth out and harmonize with further elevage.
