Sadly, there's not a whole lot of production to this microscopic estate in Pomerol, but the name says it all. The awesome aromatics include not only raspberries, black cherries, and blackberry, but also the floral perfume of an haute couture house. Its terrific aromatics are followed by a wine with quintessential elegance married to almost unbridled density of fruit, all presented in a flawless and seamless concoction of full-bodied power, elegance and purity. This is a riveting wine and certainly one of the great classics to ever be produced by this tiny estate. Kudos to proprietress Catherine Pere-Verge.

Sports lush, heady fig, boysenberry and plum jam aromas and flavors, with a creamy mouthfeel and lots of licorice, fruitcake and ganache notes showing on the finish. Not shy and plenty dense, but retains a velvety feel and solid focus. For fans of the flashier style.
