(55% cabernet franc and 45% merlot; 32 h/h; 85% new oak): Bright, deep ruby. Profound aromas of strawberry, blueberry, fresh herbs, mocha and vanilla. Then deep, dense and suave, with noteworthy clarity to the red and dark fruit flavors. The finish is long and pure, with polished tannins and just a trace of greenness, probably due to all that cabernet franc in the blend. Still, the measure of this wine's greatness and proprietor Alain Vauthier's talent is that he has come up with such an impressive effort in a year when weather conditions were more than difficult for cabernet franc. The merlot was harvested between October 9 and 12 and the cabernet franc on October 13, 15, and 17. -- Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media.
