Wine Advocate (april 2010)

93 - 95/100

“ Following the lustrous 2000 and 2005, the 2009 is another terrific effort from proprietor Emmanuel CRUSE. Tiny yields of 18 hectoliters per hectares, 13.7% natural alcohol, and a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% of Merlot have resulted in a wine boasting stunning minerality along with notes of flowers, blueberries, and black currants. Full-bodied with silky tannin, a tremendous opulence, and levels of density and richness never before seen at this estate, this brilliant d’Issan should age for three decades or more.”

Jancis Robinson

Drink 2015-2027; May 11 hail meant yield was just 35 hl/ha. We were shown a sarment with scars like machine-gun fire on one side and satin smooth on the other. Dark, intense nose. Very smooth and satin-like with the tannins extremely ripe underneath. Very similar blend to Blason, 40% Merlot, same as in 2005. Fresh and ripe and easy. With a nice kick on the finish. This should last a lot longer but its very much in the same style."

Decanter Magazine


"Dense red, rich,, plummy black fruits, wonderful middle palate showing great structure over the lissom, fleshy fruit, lovely texture and very good tannins for the future. Drink 2015-28.". "
