Tasting Notes:
rated: December 10, 2007 ,
89 points "This seriously run property, located on a plateau not far from Fronsac, is planted with 83% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. It is run by Vincent and Beatrice Rapin, whose father owns Ferrand-Lartigue. A sleeper of the vintage, the 2003 Valmengaux is a modern-styled, richly fruity claret"

89 points "An amazing effort from a humble Bordeaux appellation, this sleeper of the vintage reveals a heady concoction of dense black currants, melted licorice, smoke, and barbecue spices. Dense, opulent, fruity, and rich, it should be consumed over the next 4-5 years. Add to Print List Wine Advocate # 140 Apr 2002 Robert Parker (88-90) Drink 2002 - 2010 $20-$28 This amazing effort, a 5,000 bottle cuvee made by the children of Ferrand-Lartigue's proprietor, boasts gorgeous opulence, lavish quantities of blackberry and cherry fruit, a touch of sweet toasty oak, and a fleshy, 30-second finish. It is a revelation for a generic Bordeaux, admirably demonstrating what can be done by conscientious producers from humble appellations. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years." Best 2004-2009
