Product description

Tasting Notes:

2010 is a great vintage that is distinguished by its very straight and structured style . It is a harmony between power and finesse, with a tone of classicism and silky tannins

 

The LIBERAL family ran the property in the early eighteenth century. Wine brokers from father to son, they sold the harvests to the Netherlands and Belgium. Their name adjoining the topographical designation, earned them invitations to the tables of political parties of the same name worldwide.

Today, the property is run by Claire VILLARS LURTON. She undertook an overhaul of the tool of winemaking and has adopted a new approach to the environment.

 

 

"One of the best efforts from this estate since the 1982, this wine remains fairly priced. It exhibits ripe blue and black fruits, a dense plum/purple color, good acidity buttressing a remarkably rich, fleshy, sumptuous texture, and oodles of smoky black currant and blueberry fruit. Ripe, heady and rich, this wine will probably benefit from 2-5 years of cellaring despite its precociousness and keep for two decades."

Wine Advocate: 92 (Robert M Parker, Jr.)

 

 

"Dark in profile and rather stolid, with a beam of currant, plum and fig allied to a prominent iron shaft that clamps down on the charcoal-textured finish. Showing rather austerely today, but has the length and cut to develop in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2025. 8,500 cases made."
