Critical Acclaim

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast

Big and powerful, this is a wine that is supported by dense tannins. The feeling is dry and firm, with a brooding black-currant character.
Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points

WS 95
Wine Spectator

Open and inviting, with almost gushy blueberry, fig and boysenberry fruit at first. But then there's lively acidity stitching the finish together, with bouncy spice and anise notes and a streak of graphite that should emerge more through the élevage. This has some serious range, echoing with fruit and spice.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points

The Wine Advocate

Massive for the vintage (14.7% alcohol), this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from a small 16-acre vineyard was cropped at 21 hectoliters per hectare. It was made by the remarkably talented team of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Inky/purple-colored with notes of crushed rocks, blackberry and blueberry liqueur and hints of charcoal and incense, this full-bodied, rich, dense offering admirably displays its exquisite terroir. Give the 2011 4-5 years of cellaring, and enjoy it over the following 20-25.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points

James Suckling

What a beautiful nose of forest floor, dark fruits, sweet tobacco, and blackberries. Full body, with firm and silky tannins and a minerally refined finish. Very polished and well made.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points

In those days, the large chai was used to store and age the most prestigious wines of the Saint Émilion and Pomerol regions (Cheval Blanc, Petrus, Beau-Sejour, Nénin, La Conseillante, ... and Château Beausejour!)

The estate was purchased in 1994 by a group of wine loving investors. During... View More
