I had this three different times, consistently scoring it the same. The final blend was 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. The 2009 and 2010 are legendary if you can still find any. Fifty-seven percent of the total production made it into this wine, which tips the scales at 14.3% natural alcohol, giving you an idea that even in a very tough vintage this terroir can still produce ripe fruit. Yields were 13 hectoliters per hectare. A huge nose of crushed chalk, licorice, blueberry liqueur, graphite and a hint of truffle and camphor jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine. Medium-bodied, it doesn’t have the great depth, power and broad swath across the palate that the 2009 and 2010 possessed, but it’s still a beauty. This is elegant and should drink well in 3-4 years. This is one 2013 that may well last and improve beyond 12-15 years.
