TASTING NOTES

This is a great effort from Blankiet that has turned out beautifully, with a silky personality, voluptuous texture, beautiful nose of roasted herbs, burning embers, smoked meat, spring flowers, and plenty of blackberry and cassis. Almost La Mission Haut-Brion-ish in its character thanks to the minerality and smokiness, the wine is full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and has shed its once-considerable tannins, which are relatively rapid-paced.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.

Full medium ruby to the rim. Reticent aromas of black fruits, black licorice pastille, lilac and menthol. Dense and dark on entry, with a slightly inky quality overshadowing the wine's dark fruit sweetness. 

Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.
