Decanter average score: 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 19 AG 16.5 SS 18
Lush, heady cassis and plum nose – exuberantly fruity. Fine lift and a lovely impression of lush fruit on the palate. A very fine, elegant Pauillac with a long life. This has real grandeur as well as depth of fruit and is built to last.
Price £35–£51 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants
