Neal Martin rated this wine 93 points. (robertparker.com, May 29, 2016)
Stephan von Neipperg's tiny jewel of a vineyard 12 acres produces the ultimate garage wine from 50-year old vines. A candidate for the wine of the vintage, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is a big, concentrated effort of extraordinary intensity and richness. A sensational bouquet of sweet blueberry, black raspberry, and black currant fruit interwoven with scents of charcoal, incense, graphite, and pain grille is followed by an extraordinarily intense, full-bodied, amazingly concentrated wine displaying elevated tannins in the finish. It is another uncompromising effort meant for long-term cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030. Score - 97. (Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com, Feb. 24, 2009 )
