Superb appearance. Deep garnet red colour with no sign of development. Powerful, rich and complex nose with notes of black fruits, mocha, gingerbread. Full, classy, voluptuous palate with fat and well-integrated tannins. Powerful finish with strong potential. A great wine for ageing that can be enjoyed in 2 to 3 years.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. This solid wine is dark with tannins and a dense, extracted texture. The palate is weighty with an intensely dry core and a serious, mineral character. For long-term aging.

Wine AdvocateThis property has been on the upswing for a number of years now, and the 2012 Dassault is showing brilliantly. Dense plum/purple, with sweet blueberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit, the wine cuts a broad, full-bodied swath on the palate. It has silky tannins and is forward, seductive and opulent. Drink it over the next decade or more. This is a beauty and a real crowd-pleaser.

Wine SpectatorIntense, with layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit pumping along, studded with mouthwatering anise and singed apple wood notes. A bolt of graphite takes over on the finish, with charcoal and chalk details echoing through the finish. A touch burly overall, but should soften with cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2025. 6,250 cases made.
