Spectacularly rich and intense, the 2012 L'Esprit des Pavots displays all the features which characterize the Les Pavots terroir: blueberry, vanilla bean, licorice, chocolate, cedar and coffee. The fruit of younger vines brings additional aromas of black cherry, black currant, plum, 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 AdvocateMade from a selection of the lots considered not rich enough for Les Pavots, the 2012 L'Esprit des Pavots is a 1,710-case blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. A fruity red displaying notes of coffee beans, chocolate, plums, black cherries, truffles and earth, it is a medium to full-bodied, lush red meant to be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.
