This wine comes from one of a group of wineries with vines in the small area north of Listrac called Le Fourcas. It's packed with red fruits and juicy acidity. The dominant Merlot gives a bold, rich texture backed up by the more structured Cabernets. It will develop quickly and be ready from 2017. Read more

James Suckling

Some berry and stone character with hints of clay. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Pleasant and lively if a bit austere Drink or hold.

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

This has never been one of my favorites, although in great vintages where ripeness is easily obtained, it can be a useful wine. The 2012 seems to be reasonably successful for the vintage. It is not too austere, its tannins are fairly ripe, and the wine is mid-weight with attractive notes of black and red currant fruit, spice box and earth Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Drink 2017-2024Dark purple. Sweet then savoury on the nose. Good freshness. Very plush texture and wonderful work to make this as engaging as possible but it all rather falls away towards the finish. Shame… Greenness and meanness assert themselves towards the end. 16/20
