Damien Dupuy moved onto the family farm in 2010, a nice 66 ha property and birthplace of reliable value wines. This wine was elected a jury favourite for the vintages 2008 and 2003, and the 2010 is in the same vein. This blend dominated by Merlot received a controlled oak stay (twelve months in vats and six months in barrel) that highlights its power, richness and complexity. Lightly wooded, measured and delicate, with vanilla, chocolate and toast, allowed to express on the nose and palate a sweet fruit reminiscent of ripe cassis and sweet jam. Robust, the palate is based on a frame of fine, silky tannins and lingers on the fruity finish. A wine that is at once attractive and appealing, and one that will benefit from a further two to three years of aging. Score: 2 (out of 3). Source: Guide Hachette, 2013
