The wine's colour is reminiscent of black cherries, a sign of perfect youth. Its aromas are an elegant association of fresh and jammy black fruit. Careful aging has added a fine, charming woodiness and additional grilled notes of toasted bread. On the palate the attack is fresh and young, tight tannins are well-incorporated into the wine's body. The tannins will develop with time, but for now they are nicely balanced with the wine's fresh, nervous acidity. The mid-palate is opulent, with a texture that reflects the wine's spirited style. This wine has an incredible potential to age well into the future.

99 Points Robert Parker - This tiny gem of a property, cropped at 15 hectoliters per hectare, is composed of 5 acres of 45-year old Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a tiny parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon. It has produced one of the vintage's most compelling wines in 2005. Sadly, there are only 4,000 bottles of this inky/purple-hued Saint Emilion. It boasts an extraordinary perfume of graphite, blackberries, cassis and sweet kirsch intermixed with notes of incense, spice box, liquorice and subtle wood. Stunningly rich with full body, zesty acidity and high but velvety tannins, the final blend is composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It will unquestionably be one of the vintage's immortals.
