Robert Parker 90-92 Points
"I believe this is the first Serilhan vintage to boast Hubert de Bouard as the winemaking consultant. The strongest effort I have tasted from this 60-acre estate, it is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and hit 14% natural alcohol. A soft, round, generous, opaque plum-colored wine, it offers abundant notes of black cherries and black currants intermixed with hints of herbs and earth. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next 10-15 years."

"Aromas of plums and minerals with hints of flowers follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Spicy. Delicious. Better in 2016."

"This firmly tannic wine, characteristic of Saint-Estephe, is very dry. Underneath the dryness, there is a delicious, opulent juiciness that brings out black currant and plum flavors. It's obviously a wine for the long haul; keep for at least six years."-RV
To be served 17-18° with duck olives or grilled piece of beef with seasonal vegetables.
Perfect with small roasted game and a cheese assortment.
Ageing capacity: 8-10 years
