Extremely limited Wine Spectator #2 Wine of 2021.

98 Points Wine Spectator: "Offers a deep well of dark currant, blackberry paste and plum preserves fruit that needs time to unwind fully, as it’s shrouded in warm earth, tobacco, singed cedar, sweet bay leaf and savory notes. A ramrod of graphite adds to the racy, structured feel. Best from 2030 through 2050."

Owner Frédéric Rouzaud hired Nicolas Glumineau as general director in 2012, and this famed Bordeaux second-growth has been on an upward trajectory ever since. Glumineau has overseen a replanting program, increasing the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyards and shifting steadily to organic and biodynamic farming. A cellar renovation included new, smaller vats for a more exacting, parcel-by-parcel and even intra-parcel vinification process. The results show: In 2018, the estate hit the bar set by its acclaimed ’82 and ’59 vintages with its grand vin blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It’s a blue chip built for long cellar time.
