Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"This wine is explosive on the nose with wild berries, chocolate, cookie dough, and dark cherries. Once on the palate the wine is dense, fleshy and powerful with a great concentration. The mid palate is showing powerful tannins and finishing with notes of sage and cloves. There is a lasting finish of crushed rocks and blueberries. The wine is showing very well right now and has a great aging potential."
93 Points & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Jammy, rich and leathery, this full-bodied robust wine has a touch of smoke lingering in the back, beneath soft, well-integrtaed oak. Juicy, it's enjoyable now, while being structured enough to go another decade or so." - Virginie Boone
