2010 vintage (Bernard Magrez bought the estate, the largest Cru Classé in Saint-Emilion in 1999). Blend of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8 % Cabernet sauvignon. Modern style, drinking beautifully now. Nice truffle nose, and smooth, velvety taste. Not the most complex, but excellent value.

Massively rich and beautifully endowed bottle. It has been showing great since the day it was released and today was no different. Loads of fruit. Soft velvety tannins and a long finish

Nice wine. Beautiful for the price. Several years of age worthy now and for the next 5 years.

This is unbelievable especially for the price. It is very ripe and rich but has some lift from all that st emilion limestone. BERNARD magrez know what he is doing. There is not a rough edge to be found here and although this beauty is opulent and wide open today, I suspect it has many years ahead of it. All for around $30 or $40 bucks. Crazy. (Napa richness and bordeaux persistence)

A lovely Bordeaux still very young despite is 10 years of age, lovely tempting deep garnet color, inviting aromas of cassis, black current, black peeper, black cherries, coffee, vanilla and earthiness, a full elegant body with firm dry tannins, the oak is still very present and needs a few more years to open up, acidity is lovely and finish is long and complex. A good Saint Emilion, from a truly successful vintage. My score 89, drink to 2024
