Incense and toasty oak, along with juicy ripe plums, licorice and flowers are what you initially notice. Medium-bodied, round, polished, soft and fleshy, with spicy overtones to the red fruits and oak on the palate and in the supple-textured finish are what you find here. 90-92 Pts

With a nice depth of color, the wine is round, lush forward, soft and polished with toasted oak, espresso, dark cocoa and ripe, sweet, black plums on the nose and palate. Give this a few years in the cellar to better integrate. Drink from 2023-2038.

Deeply colored, with dark red fruits, espresso beans, smoke, spice and licorice on the nose. The palate is round, lush, fresh and juicy. The oak is a bit prominent at the moment, as are the tannins. But with 5 years in the cellar, everything should come together nicely. 90-92 Pts

Blackened fruits, espresso, dark chocolate with cherry liqueur are molten and flowing. Fat, juicy and sweet, this is forward, opulent and dense. Using 100% Merlot, the wine was produced from very low yields of 11 hectoliters per hectare.

Pierre de Lune is owned Tony Ballu, the wine maker for Clos Fourtet. This small, 1 hectare, biodynamically farmed vineyard is planted on sand and gravel soils. From a mix of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14% ABV, which is lower than what they achieved in 2009. With scents of jammy black raspberries, stone and licorice, this round textured wine ends with a licorice and sweet, black cherry finish. 91-93 Pts

Not a wine you see often, which is too bad, but I really like it. Round, supple, ripe and filled with lush black cherries, licorice and chocolate, with truffle accents, this is drinking quite well today.

Ready to go, but in no danger of running out of steam, the medium-bodied wine is lush, round, fruity, and packed with smoke, espresso, dark cocoa, deep, red pit fruit, licorice and opulent tannins.

Nice wine, soft, silky, polished with the right amount of licorice, cherry and truffle too. This is close to fully ready, so if you are waiting, wait no longer.

What a pleasure to taste. Silky, almost luxurious in nature on the palate. The fresh sweet, dark fruits were in full force on nose as well, accompanied by licorice, dark chocolate and smoke. The endnote on the finish continued the theme. Popped and poured, this was just great from the moment the wine hit the glass, through to the last drop.

Ready to drink, this charming, elegant, medium bodied wine is all about the truffle and fresh cherry notes, with plush textures. As good as this is, it's not a wine for aging. I'm going to drink my remaining bottles over the next 5 years.

This is described as eating perfectly ripe, sweet, polished blackberries with drops of licorice and chocolate off your table. There is not a hard edge to be found in this sexy, elegant, stylish wine. With a very small production, this will become very hard to find.

Light in color and fruit, with simple red fruits, spice and earth, this needs to be drunk up sooner than later.
