"The more expensive cuvée, the 2012 La Fleur Morange, is the more serious of the siblings. Broodingly dark ruby/purple, with more cassis, black raspberry, earth and spice, it is medium to full-bodied, ripe, pure, nicely textured and long. This is consistently a top effort and ideal for drinking early on or cellaring for 10-12 years. It is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc from 80-year-old vines cropped at a lowly 25 hectoliters per hectare (14.5% alcohol)."

"In total contrast is the 2012 La Fleur Morange. This sensational effort exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of blueberry jam, creme de cassis, incense and camphor as well as a touch of background oak (the wine is aged in 100% new French barrels). Full-bodied and long with ripe tannin, this impressive 2012 should drink well for 15+ years. Another exclusivity of Jeffrey M. Davies Signature Selections, this excellent estate produces an early-bottled cuvee from 100% Merlot called Mathilde. From a 5-acre parcel of 80-year-old vines cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare, it is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc that reached 14.5% natural alcohol."
