Tasting notes


<li> limited-edition cru bourgeois <li> complex character<br><br> In a typical year Château Haut-Canteloup produces over 20,000 cases, but in 1998 it set aside special barrels destined for its deluxe wine, Cuvée Collection, which consists of only 1,500


Medium-dark ruby colour, and complex aromas of ripe berries, leather, cassis, and smoky-earthy notes in the background. Plenty of lovely spicy, toasty oak and intergrated tannins. Should drink will within 3 years and continue to evolve over the next 7-10
