Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From the Medoc region in France, this is a blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv and Cab Franc. Dark garnet red with a fragrant nose of ripe berries, vanilla and oak. The delicious multi-layered palate shows ripe strawberries, cassis, raspberries, vanilla, baking spice, mint, milk chocolate and oak. There's bright acidity followed by a long spicy fruit finish. I'd buy 2 of this beauty.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark berries, orange peel, cigar box, and leather on the nose. Medium bodied and well structured, the tannins show this wines provenance and suggest a two hour decant and a lamb dish to pair. Enjooy 2015-2020+. Tasted June 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A hearty Bordeaux blend from the Medoc deep ruby in colour with plentiful aromas. Dark cherry, cassis, ripe strawberry,clove, cigar, toast, vanilla. This full-bodied red wine has youthful tannins, medium+ acidity and nose repeats on the palate with addition of caramel and leather. Good price/quality ratio. Pair with finer cuts of beef. Suggest decanting 2 hours. Good aging potential.
Tasted: June 2015
Produced by Henri Reich et Fils, Prop.-récoltant, this Medoc, Bordeaux red wine leads with Merlot at 50% of the blend but also has Cabernet Sauvignon 45% and Cabernet Franc 5%. The vines are planted in calcerous soils with gravel. Harvest took place between October 5 and 28, 2010. - Community Wine Reviews
