Year: 2009  

Vinous, 94 Points 

"As good as Les Pavots is in 2009, the real surprise is the 2009 L’Esprit des Pavots, which costs about half the price and delivers nearly as much pleasure.  To be sure, $95 a bottle isn’t cheap, but the Esprit delivers the goods and then some.  The 2009 is a huge, mouthfilling wine bursting with dark fruit.  It doesn’t have the textural finesse or sophistication of Les Pavots (especially in the tannins), but it is nevertheless incredibly pleasing right now.  I loved it." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points

"The 2009 L’Esprit des Pavots (47% Cabernet Franc, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) is a much smaller cuvee of 1,540 cases. One of the best second wines I have tasted from this winery, it offers up much of the same character as its bigger sibling, but softer tannins and a more near-term accessibility give the wine immediate appeal. It should drink well for 10-12 years." 

Alcohol: 14.6%
