    218, The Wine Advocate

    This St.-Emilion (1,000 cases), which has a very high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%, which is much higher than Cheval Blanc or Ausone) has always been the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Malthus. The 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of raspberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower garden notes, which are followed by a medium-bodied wine with stunning elegance, purity and minerality. It is not the biggest wine, but the quality of the fruit, the complex nuances, and overall equilibrium make for a very special Bordeaux to drink over the next 15 or so years.

    Tasting note: (with thanks to Dr. Reed Day). A ripe and still relatively primary nose features a veritable spice cupboard of black fruit aromas that is followed by ripe, intense, sappy and well-concentrated flavors that are supported by notably firm tannins and outstanding length. This is indisputably still on its way up, indeed the palate impression remains robust and solidly structured so some patience is still in order though we are no longer a decade away from peak drinkability. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.
