Wine SpectatorDark, sleek and inviting, with gorgeous plum cake, fig and blackberry coulis notes mixing with melted licorice snap and tar on the finish. Not small by any stretch, with mouthwatering acidity and vivacity pulling you in now. Should develop with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.

Wine Enthusiast91-93 This has power, you can feel the alcohol from the Merlot in the blend. At the same time, the fruit drives through with great juiciness.

Wine AdvocateThe second wine, the 2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville, is a gorgeous, plump, fat fruit bomb with oodles of black currants, cherries, spice box, roasted herbs and a hint of barbecue smoke. It is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and like a lot of second wines, is meant to be drunk as soon as it's released, although it's capable of lasting at least a decade or more.
