Natalie's Score: 88/100

A Merlot-driven Bordeaux red wine blend from the right bank. This wine will do well in the cellar. Generous oak aging that results in vanilla smoke, along with blackcurrant and cassis. Full-bodied and well-structured. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with steak.

Food pairings: steaks, grilled vegetables, gourmet hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Bill rated this wine as 92/100
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A soft and easy drinking wine. Lots of plum, blackberry and cherry with a core of smoke and mocha. Would pair well with grilled meat.
This wine is a classic St-Émilion red by Jean-Pierre Moueix, Négociant. Moueix buys most of the grapes for this wine, especially the Merlot, from several of St- Émilion's most esteemed grape growers. The 2010 vintage was spectacular for most producers in this region. - Community Wine Reviews
