An absolutely stunning wine from the Janoueix family, this dense, full-bodied, wonderfully floral and blueberry/blackberry-scented wine shows some toasty vanillin, but then hits the palate with a full-bodied thunder and cascade of glycerin and fruit in its luscious personality. Captivating and seductive, thick, juicy, full-bodied and pure, this is a beautiful St.-Emilion fruit bomb to drink over the next 10-15 years. Robert Parker

The second wine this afternoon enjoyed by a close friend and myself was the 2010 Chateau LaConfession St.Emillion Grand Cru. The nose has savory notes of bing cherries, blackberry, stone, vanilla and smoke. On the first sip gave notes of black cherry, blackberry, spice, mocha, coffee and a herbaceous note that I really like. This wine has medium + acidity with medium + fine tannins that fill out the mouth nicely. This offering is 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc a typical right bank blend. A very nice continuation of a wonderful afternoon with a close dear friend. Nostrovia!
