|What experts say|
"A second wine half-Merlot half-Cabernet Franc, fruity and slightly animal on the nose, supple and round on the palate, enhanced by soft tannins which makes it great to drink young."
92/100 "This small production wine is the equivalent of a second wine for Count Leo de Malet-Roquefort's Premier Grand Cru Classé estate. The wine is smooth, elegant and ripe. Black plums and perfumed acidity are accompanied by some wood aging flavors and fresher black-currant fruitiness. It is a sophisticated wine that still needs to age."
