Region/Terroir: Médoc –Cru bourgeois
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), Merlot (70%), Petit Verdot (10%).
Soil: Clayey-chalky gravel hills.
Wine making: Grapes picked by hand. Fermentation occurs at low temperatures in stainless steel, temperature controlled vats. Malolactic fermentation occurs partially in new oak barrels. The wine is aged in oak for 16 months.
Cellaring potential: A wine that will achieve full maturity a decade from the vintage, so its drinking beautifully now. Or could be kept for several years - if you can resist!
Our Tasting notes: This wine had a WOW factor in a large line up of wines from the Médoc. Lifted nose with some floral (violet) notes and blackcurrant/cassis. Gorgeous mouth feel,soft, round and long with great balance. Complex palate , blackcurrants, liquorice notes and tobacco. As good as many classified growths.
