Reviews/Information
"91+ out of 100…Very elegant kirsch liqueur-like notes mixed with licorice, spice and earth jump from the glass of this famous St.-Emilion, long-owned by the Malet Roquefort family. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (14% alcohol), this has slightly more acidity and structure than some St.-Emilions. The limestone-dominated terroir comes through in the wine’s striking and very powerful minerality. It is medium-bodied, elegant, tightly knit and probably in need of 2-4 years of bottle age. It should drink well for the following 15 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate

"(85-88) out of 100...Slightly snappy, with savory, cherry pit and pomegranate notes leading to a relatively quick, angular feel on the finish." - Wine Spectator
