"It is an easy-going, dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged wine displaying sweet tannin as well as plenty of black and blue fruits that hit the palate with some authority, but tend to fade more quickly than other top St.-Emilions. Charming, pure and silky, it is best consumed in its first decade of life. This estate, which was part of the huge Figeac vineyard until it broke away in 1879, has produced a soft, round 2011 from modest yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare. Made by Stephane Derenoncourt’s wife, Christine, it is a blend of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc."
