Cabernet Sauvignon finds ideal maturing conditions in these well-drained gravel soils. Blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it produces a wine that is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. Its making and maturing is painstaking. When fully ready it shows the unique charm of the best Saint Estephe wines: complex, well-balanced and harmonious.

Wine SpectatorAromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through. Turns long and pretty. Best after 2010.

Wine AdvocateA dark ruby color is followed by aromas and flavors of sweaty leather, roasted herbs, spice box, and sweet cherries and plums. This superficial, pleasant, charming St.-Estephe lacks the depth, concentration, and finish of the vintage's finest wines. Drink it now and over the next 10-15 years.

Robert Parker, April 2008
