Wine Advocate #158 (Apr 2005) Robert Parker (88-90) points Drink 2005-2009. An opulent, sexy, sensual offering with abundant quantities of caramel-infused black cherry and currant fruit, the 2003 boasts a voluptuous texture as well as a lush, richly fruity mid-palate, and heady alcohol and glycerin in the finish. Enjoy this alluring wine over the next 3-4 years.
Wine Advocate #152 (Apr 2004) Robert Parker (87-89) points Drink 2004-2008. Layers of deep black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of licorice and tobacco leaf soar from the glass of this medium ruby/purple-tinged 2003. A textural fruit bomb, with loads of lushness as well as nicely integrated spicy oak, this stylish, exuberant offering is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years. This 90% Merlot/10% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee, cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare. It tops the scales at 14.5% alcohol. The brilliant co-owner, Stephane Derenoncourt, is one of the brains behind this operation.
