Château de Lamarque: 7,500 vines/ha
Red and black berry fruits on the nose. Merlot roundness and Cabernet firmness blend perfectly together with added richness, spice and grip from the Petit Verdot. Still firm on the palate, very Haut-Médoc with ripeness and structure, tannins and terroir in balance for a fine future.
