Classification Grand Cru

(100% merlot): Good full medium ruby-red. Enticing aromas of red fruits, truffle and underbrush. Juicy and sweet but firm, with red fruit flavors displaying good ripeness for the year but a bit camouflaged today by the wine's bright acidity and serious mouthcoating tannins. Dominated by its structure right now, but I love this wine's perfume. Rating: 86-89 Ian d'Agata - Stephen Tanzer website (May 2014)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

(100 Merlot) 30% new oak, 12000 bottles. Very dark, but clean, not too heavy and some nice sooty notes on the finish. Not complex but a good effort. Rating: 15.5 Matthew Jukes (Apr 2014)

From Denis Durantou, this pure Merlot picked on 28 and 29 September has a delicate, floral bouquet with perfumed violet scents emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded and soft tannins. There is plenty of straightforward dark plum and blackcurrant fruit, leading to an unassuming but well-balanced, easy-drinking finish. This is a wine that will be built for pleasure.
