Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(RP=91) A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, this estate, which has made a succession of brilliant wines under the administration of Bordeaux¡¦s visionary Bernard Magrez, has turned out another terrific effort. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine exhibits a sensational smorgasbord of aromas ranging from red and black fruits to toasty oak to licorice, high quality cigar tobacco, and spice box. Flavorful and full-bodied, with rich fruit, moderate but sweet tannin, and a long, pure finish, this is a dazzling effort in 2006 that should hit its adolescent stage in about 4-5 years and last for two decades. Excellent value. (AG=90) Bright ruby-red. Dark berries, sweet cherry, licorice and sexy oak on the vibrant nose. Dense, juicy and light on its feet, with intense, sharply delineated dark berry flavors complemented by oak. Finishes clean and persistent, with suave, palate-dusting tannins and lingering berry fruit. This subtly complex and lively wine is a major outperformer for its appellation. (WS=90) A rich, dark red, with cooked plum and licorice aromas. Full-bodied and long, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Impressive for the vintage. Best after 2012. 21,870 cases made
