Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2011 Le Desir brings together the aromatics and red-toned fruit of La Muse, but with the slightly greater mid-palate volume of La Joie. Cedar, tobacco, smoke and crushed flowers add an attractive upper register to this soft, forward Cabernet Franc-based red. [Antonio Galloni, 01/01/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2015-2026

Robert Parker – 92

The 2011 Le Desir, a St.-Emilion-inspired offering, is a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc, 36% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. My favorite of the 2011s, it displays lots of mulberry, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intertwined with hints of underbrush as well as a subtle herbaceousness, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful density and sweet tannin. There are 2,500 cases of this 2011. Drink now-2025. Tel. (707) 433-9000 [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 13/10/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025
