Tasting Notes

Multi-layered, sweet, ripe, dark summer fruit aromas with savoury spicy notes. The palate is very concentrated with masses of dark plum and blackberry fruit and bold, masculine tannins. The acidity is vibrant and the finish is long and deep. This is a powerful, structured wine which will age superbly well. Drink 2020 ? 2040.

Reviews & Scores

2010: One of the prodigious wines of the vintage, the Cuvelier family has produced an outstanding 2010 that must tip the scales at 14.5+% alcohol. It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of spring flowers, black raspberries, creme de cassis and a hint of spicy oak. This seamlessly constructed St.-Julien possesses massive concentration, moderately high tannins, abundant glycerin, an unctuous texture, remarkably fresh acids and wonderful precision. It will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and last 30-35 years.
