Each year, the seven hectares of the estate, conscientiously tended and harvested manually, offer a rare and intimate wine which will surprise you with its charisma. While you enjoy its natural and beneficial antioxidants and vitamins, you will dare at last to abandon yourself wisely into the arms of the famous French paradox.
The cellarmaster of all the Gerard Perse properties, Laurent Lusseau, makes a small quantity of hedonistic St.-Emilion from a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009, which only has 13.8% alcohol (relatively modest by the norm in this vintage, particularly on the Right Bank), is a dark ruby/plum-colored wine with notes of sweet raspberries, black cherries and even a hint of strawberry jam. Some licorice, forest floor and underbrush are also present in this medium to full-bodied, silky-textured, lush wine, which is meant to be drunk in its first decade of life. - Robert Parker 90 Points
