|Grape variety:||Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Origin:||France, Bordeaux, Médoc|
Cassis, very pure, undeveloped, fine. Sweetness of fruit, pleasing freshness. Tannins not fully integrated but has richness of flavour. Will be very good. Drink from 2015.
Deeply concentrated, very pronounced cassis fruit, smoky and quite briary and lifted by natural acidity. Lively style, good depth and concentration. Drink 2010-25. (17 points)
