Tasting Note:

This is the first full vintage of the new regime, and under the tenure of Nicolas Audebert, there has been an immediate improvement. This lovely 10 hectare plot between Canon and Angelus had been underperforming, but now in the hands of the Wertheimer family, there is the potential for this to be one of the great crus of St Emilion. Produced from 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc. It possesses a cool, mineral, earthy style. There is something intensely ferrous about this, you can taste the terroir. One can quite easily see the connection to Canon, they are kindred spirits, although Canon has a more ethereal style, this is more savoury and just lacks the sleekness and polish of its neighbour. It finishes with dark fruits, notes of tapenade, graphite and mineral. There's good texture and plenty of material. If it fleshes out during élevage it will be a very good buy.
