Spectacularly rich and intense, the 2013 L'Esprit des Pavots displays Tasting all the features which characterize the Les Pavots terroir: blueberry, Notes vanilla beans, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. The fruit of younger vines brings additional aromas of black cherries, blackcurrant, plums, leather, tobacco and gray and white pepper to the complex bouquet. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated, exhibiting abundant, supple tannins and a lingering finish. Fruit forward and enjoyable at release, this wine should age for a decade or more.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 L'Esprit des Pavots, a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot. Soft, round and juicy, with licorice, roasted herbs, underbrush, blackberry and cassis, this is a yummy, sexy and seductive style of wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.
