The palate is full and powerful, with a fleshy and densemid-palate, carried by the rich tannins. There is an exquisite finish supported by a sublime tannic structure, fine, elegant andbalanced.

94 Points Robert Parker - This property, which has been on a qualitative tear over the last generation, has produced one of the most successful wines of 2011. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it is broad, rich, medium to full-bodied and dense. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as lots of concentration, silky tannins, and a bigger, richer mouthfeel than any of its St.-Julien peers. The result is one of the stars of the vintage.
