M/M Paul Chaperon owned this estate in the mid-19th Century and their descendants, the Ducasse Family, have since kept the property in their able hands until 1990, Mrs. Luis Ducasse, brought in a partner, Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), insuring L-T stability. Big fruit aromas with mineral & spice notes. Blackberry flavors, almost jammy, cacao & spice, rich and full. Smooth sweet tannins, great balance, lingering ending with soft earthy character. Pricey but great. Tasting Sample.

Tasted blind. Dark tawny with bricking rims. Animalistic nose with notes of ripe black fruit, cooked meat, plums, earth and a little anise. Very rich in the mouth. Powerful and complex. I guessed Cote Rotie. Nobody guessed Bordeaux. Still young but oh so silky right now.

A massive Brett bomb. Opened up into a Lucious mid palate, though lacking texture.

Luscious. Silky. At its peak. I'd drink this over the next three years.

Easy-going, gentle and rounded-off flavors with red currants, dark plums and oaky barrel additions, and despite its lightness, its direct, ready and positively drinkable.
