Vibrant, fresh, and fruity, with a crisp, freshness to the wine, and a touch of chocolate that shows on the medium-bodied palate that remains with you through to the finish. This will be charming to enjoy on release. Drink from 2026-2034. 89-91 Pts.

Forward, soft, fresh and fruity, all the cherries, raspberries and plums are blending together perfectly on the medium-bodied palate. This is already quite nice and easy to enjoy and will be perfect for tasting over the next decade or so. Drink from 2024-2034.

Medium-bodied, soft, round, ripe, fresh and polished, the wine displays its center of chocolate coated fruits, espresso bean, licorice, and Indian spices with little effort. You can enjoy this in its youth, or age it if you prefer more secondary notes. Drink from 2023-2037.

Ripe dark red fruits, jam, licorice and smoke aromas open the perfume. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, energetic, fruity and with a discernible oaky side to its character. I like the wine, but I would like it even more with a bit less wood.

The true debut vintage for Alain Raynaud for this St. Emilion estate, which Raynaud purchased in 2010. Made from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with vines averaging 25 years of age, the wine opens with black pepper, earth, espresso, blackberry, red plum and blueberry aromas, this soft textured, medium bodied wine should offer pleasure early. The wine reached 13.5% ABV. 88-90 Pts

Recently purchased by the consultant Alain Raynaud, while this is the official debut vintage for Raynaud, he did not begin to make the wines until the following year. Located not far from the sandy soils of Monbousquet, the wine offers good color, spice and black raspberries with a touch oak, medium/full body and the ability to be enjoyed on the young side.
