Cabernet Sauvignon finds ideal maturing conditions in these well-drained gravel soils. Blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it produces a wine that is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. Its making and maturing is painstaking. When fully ready it shows the unique charm of the best Saint Estephe wines: complex, well-balanced and harmonious.

Wine SpectatorSpicy raspberry and blackberry aromas lead to a full body, with sweet, ripe fruit, subtle silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. This wine is all in elegance and finish. Very fine. Best after 2013.

Wine AdvocateIt would be nice to see this property return to the form it had in the 1970s and 1980s. The 2006's hard, green tannins, hollow mid-palate, and hints of vegetables along with fading red fruits make for a lean, emaciated mouthfeel.
