Wine Advocate

Michel and Dany Rolland's flagship estate, Bon Pasteur, turned out an atypically powerful wine in 2010. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color, great fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish, super freshness for its size, full-bodied power and lots of mulberry, caramel, mocha, earth and graphite characteristics. Give this beauty 5-7 years of cellaring (unusual for a Bon Pasteur) and drink it over the following 25 years.

Score: 92-95. —Robert Parker, May 2011.

Wine Enthusiast

Firm while also rounded, very rich Merlot spice and blackberry character. There are hugely dense, extracted tannins, with a final dark fruit character. Barrel sample.

Score: 91-93. —Roger Voss, June 25, 2011.

Wine Spectator

Quite ripe, with slightly heady blueberry, fig paste and macerated currant fruit liberally laced with black tea, anise and toast. This has length, but verges on top-heavy. Barrel tasting.

Score: 89-92. —James Molesworth, 2011.
