Great vintage as you know. Showing well now. Highly recommended value wine from St. Emilion. This wine was rated by Robert Parker himself. We recommend to drink this wine with food and serve at the optimal temperature. Full bodied with loads of blackfruits. 

'A blend of 70% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has an opaque purple color and a sweet nose of vanillin, roasted coffee beans, chocolate and kirsch liqueur intermixed with blacker fruits such as cassis. It is rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic, but low in acidity and quite heady and powerful (15% natural alcohol). This impressive wine is a big, back-strapping effort to drink over the next 15+ years. Produced by Sylvie Pourquet, the sister of Gerard and Dominique Becot, this St.-Emilion grand cru classe comes from a 35-acre vineyard that consistently makes top flight wines, but I don’t think they have ever made one as impressive as their 2009.' RP92
