  • 92 Wine Spectator

    Dark, but with solid drive all along the way, as dark boysenberry, linzer torte and blackberry fruit courses along, held together by a prominent graphite spine. Long finish is stuffed with fruit. Impressive effort. Barrel Sample: 89-92 (4/10/2012)

  • 90-92 Robert Parker

    Producer Jean-Philippe Janoueix, who does such a super job with his Pomerol, La Croix Saint-Georges, and his generic Bordeaux, Croix Mouton, has this vineyard in fine working form. The 2011 La Confession (69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc) hit 13.9% natural alcohol. Its dark blue/black color is followed by abundant notes of creosote, camphor, blackberries and blueberries intertwined with notions of espresso roast and new oak. With outstanding concentration, texture and ripeness, this medium to full-bodied, surprisingly evolved, delicious St.-Emilion should drink well young and last for 12-15+ years. (4/30/2012)

  • 91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    Another terrific effort from Jean-Philippe Janoueix, this beautiful 2011 boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of smoky barbecue, red and black fruits, and subtle background oak. Rich, full-bodied and textured, there is not a hard edge to be found in this plush, well-endowed St.-Emilion. Enjoy it over the next decade. (5/2/2014)
