The grand wine is from the plateaus and the clay-limestone slopes overlooking the Côtes de Francs appellation. It is a rich wine, endowed with a straight lined and elegant palate. Ample energy and fruit within structuring tannins that present a lovely nose of fruit and spices. A blend of Merlot in majority with Cabernet Franc and a touch of Malbec. A cru that requires cellar ageing to express the entirety of its qualities.

Wine SpectatorBright, with a lively mix of pepper, anise, tobacco, black cherry and mulled black currant flavors that mesh nicely through the medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2016. 10,250 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine is still austere, with dry toastiness. Black fruits emerge from the structure, showing a severe character although one with potential. It will develop into a powerful wine, solid and firm.

Wine AdvocateA light to mid-weight effort from the Cotes de Francs, this wine reveals a deep ruby/plum color, a touch of herbaceousness, and sweet red and black fruits. Drink this attractive 2012 over the next 5-6 years.
