4 /5

The estate's wines are produced from hand harvested in crates and followed by vinification in temperature-controlled vats for 10 to 20 days, well, breeding occurs in barrels for 12 months. Methods combined with know-how used to give great wines.
The 2008 vintage offers a masterful dress, red with beautiful purple hues. This dress is deep.
The nose releases fruity and spicy aromas. The nose reveals aromas of black berries. After a few seconds of aeration, the second nose discloses sweet notes like licorice.
The mouth is a powerful and lively attack with great aromatic complexity. Fresh aromas of red fruits and spices interfere mid-palate with fine tannins. This wine has a real architecture, and suggests that this bottle will keep for many years. The finish is long turned to vanilla.
A wine combining virility and sweetness. A typical power of this Pessac-Léognan.
Drink or keep: 2014 - 2018

This 2013 will be able to overcome the difficulties vintage deemed sensitive. Beautiful garnet color. The nose is very expressive with fresh fruit aromas and blackcurrant but also toasted notes and mocha. The palate is soft and fleshy, with aromas of ripe red fruit. The tannins are melted. Beautiful elegance and beautiful smoke length. Drink or keep: 2018 - 2028
