Tasting notes

17/11/2008

Sweet, ripe, very pure, perfumed cassis. Dense, flavoursome, big but balance is good. Quite chewy tannins, needs time. Drink from 2016. (15.6 points)

Giscours (3G). Black-red, rich Cabernet fruit, totally ripe, even perhaps a little over-ripe, but sheer exuberance of fruit, not at all raisiny, bursting with energy, lovely ripe tannins. Drink 2009-20. (17.5 points)
