    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Grand Cru Classé red wine is a delicious full flavored wine with excellent structure. It has a dark ruby/purple color and reveals black cherry, cassis, and spice characteristics. This wine is fleshy, savory, elegant with concentrated tannins, and long on the palate. A judicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot enables them to improve with age.

    It is excellent with beef, lamb, grilled veal, game such as pheasant, and poultry such as grilled turkey.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is sleekly lean, the pencil-thin pencil lead and currant character of Graves here plumped up by oak aging. The wood influence dominates now, though the fruit should come forward with a few years in the cellar.

    Dark in color, with aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral and hints of new wood. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a slightly hollow midpalate, but clean. Best after 2011. 8,330 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    A solidly made, very competent effort, Olivier's spicy, monolithic, medium-bodied, dark ruby/purple-colored 2005 reveals black cherry, cassis, and spice characteristics along with a hint of herbaceousness. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
