"Healthy deep red. More earthbound on the nose than the Latricières, offering aromas of black raspberry and dark chocolate plus a hint of game. Wonderfully silky and energetic but dry and unforthcoming in the early going; more gamey than the Latricières. This powerful, saline wine boasts captivating sweetness and finishes very long, with silky, noble, seamless tannins coating the front teeth. At once less floral and deeper than usual for this cuvée. Outstanding potential here." 92-95 Stephen Tanzer
Vivid coloration ranging from deep ruby to black-cherry. Their aromas suggest strawberry, blackcurrant, and gooseberry as well as fruit pits, liquorice, and spices. Violet, moss and underbrush are also likely to be present. On the palate, power, opulence and elegance unite to make a full and complex body, full of sap and voluptuosness textured. Keeping potential is 10 years minimum. Although these sumptuous Grands Crus share a family resemblance, each has its own distinctive nuances.
