Intense dark red color. Very elegant with very dense and velvety, supple tannins. The wine has a harmonious structure, combined with a generous fruit expression and a very distinguished character showing aromas of red fruits, cassis and a touch of cedar and cinnamon. In the mouth, the wine has delightful notes of vanilla and coffee. The 5% of Petit Verdot adds an extra element of complexity. Mouth-filling, long and well-defined through the finish. The structure of this wine will keep it for over 20 years.
Highly recommended with baked turkey, rib eye steak and duck confit.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
"Beautifully concentrated, with a floral undertone to the rich yet racy wild berry, cassis and damson plum skin fruit character that's tightly wound around fine tannins. The finish is long and compact, but this needs time in the cellar to fully shine. Best from 2014 through 2020."
"This is a big and chewy wine with lots of berry and spice wood undertones. Full body, with lots of character. About 18 months in 100% new wood. Long and flavorful. Needs time to come together. A blend 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 5% cabernet franc. Better in 2016."
