    Winemaker's Notes:

    This late-ripening vintage has produced a powerful, deep-colored wine, which displays great freshness and fruit finesse. This is one of Saint Emilion's great classics.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This estate seems to be going places, making in 2004 an impressively balanced wine that seems to walk a fine line just the right side of superripeness with consummate ease. It is elegant, yet powerful, dominated by a seamless combination of blackberry jelly fruits and dark smoky tannins.

    Subtle aromas of forest fruit, meat and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a delicate berry, chocolate and earth aftertaste. Well done for the vintage. Best after 2009.

    Wine Spectator

    A soft, fleshy cassis note intermixed with plum, fig, and truffle characteristics are present in this round, easy-going, medium-bodied St.-Emilion. While it does not possess the power, richness, or remarkable concentration of its siblings, the 2003 and 2005, it is a noteworthy success for this vintage. Consume it now and over the next 10-12 years.
