With notes of tobacco, espresso, dark red fruits, herbs and cocoa, the wine is soft, round, polished, fruity and fresh. With a nice sweetness to the fruits and soft ripe tannins on the palate, the ripe berries taste and feel great in the finish. This is one of the top wines from Listrac and it sells for a song. 91-93 Pts

Lusciously textured fruits come through with ease on the palate, along with its layers of savory blackberries, touch of dark cocoa, smoke, thyme and black cherries. The finish is even better due to its layers of soft, polished, ripe dark fruits. Give this a few years of age and its going to be great for almost 2 decades. Drink from 2024-2039.

Aromatically the wine shoots right out of the glass with flowers, licorice, smoke, tobacco leaf, herbs and dark red fruits. And it gets even better on the palate with all its fresh, exuberant, ripe, licorice-covered red fruits, espresso and bitter chocolate. This is a top value from the Left Bank, so savvy consumers take notice.

With good color, it's easy to find the cassis, licorice, smoke, and cherries here. The wine has a softness to the tannins and sweet fruit in the finish.

Sporting good color, licorice, smoke, black cherry and earthy scents are right there. Round, with sweet, ripe plums in the endnote, give it a few years to come around. 88 - 90 Pts

Medium bodied, firm, classically styled, crisp wine, with strong tannins and a bright cassis, smoke and espresso bean finish. Time could add more character and softness to the wine. But the vintage was a difficult year for many estates in the Haut Medoc.

Light, crisp red fruits with a strong touch of pyrazines and tobacco leaf on the nose and soft, dusty, red berry palate. This is not going to make old bones. I'd opt for drinking this sooner than later.

Soft textures, round tannins and a blast of licorice, smoke, espresso bean and black cherries carry through from start to finish. An hour or so in the decanter helps. Still young, this will be better in a few years. One of the better wines from Moulis and it sells for fair price too! The wine was made from blending 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot.
