A dense, dark ruby hue with violet glints. Mineral and fruit aromas first come through on the nose (blackcurrants in particular), followed by a complex bouquet of liquorice mingling with notes of toasted bread crust and spices. The structure on the palate is impressive, straight and fleshy, and tannic with being aggressive, the proof of perfectly controlled extraction during vinification. The finish is long and tight-knit, with the characteristic ripe fruit, spicy, toasty notes of the Cabernet Sauvignon of the great terroirs of Pessac-Léognan. A great classic wine that may be enjoyed in five to ten years' time and up to twenty-five years or more.

Dense, winey and energetic, but also supple and alluring, with steeped plum and boysenberry fruit inlaid with hints of singed anise, violet and warm stone. The tarry finish strides with authority, revealing ample grip for cellaring. A strong showing for this estate in '10. Best from 2015 through 2028. 12,842 cases made.

A sleeper of the vintage from this under-the-radar estate, this is a complex, fragrant, sexy style of wine with deep ruby purple color, loads of red and black fruits intermixed with caramelized character, supple tannins, a savory and expansive mid-palate and finish, and sweet tannin. I found this wine extremely endearing and far better from bottle than it had shown from barrel. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following two decades.

A balanced wine, the fruit shining through the tannins. The wine has power, not excessive, with a jammy character and a light touch of final acidity.
