92 points "The 2011 Les Pavots (3,086 cases) is composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Its chocolaty fudge-like notes intermixed with espresso roast, black and red currants, smoky barbecue and underbrush are followed by a deep, rich, full-bodied, outstanding red wine that should drink well for 10-15 years.

93 points "Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of black cherry, raspberry and minerals. Large-scaled, thick and full, with blueberry, black cherry and tarry oak flavors lifted by a note of violet. Generous, superripe and dense. Finishes with huge, toothfurring tannins and a flavor of dark chocolate. Like the Esprit 2003, this comes across as less obviously sweet than the 2002 version. Has just enough grip and acidity to maintain its balance."

91 points "A rich, decadent style, with a loamy core of tannins underneath an equally earthy core of currant, tobacco, leather and spice. Tannins coat the palate on the finish, with plenty of concentrated flavors, but are also dry and potent. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2004 through 2012. 2,808 cases made. –JL " Best 2004-2012
