Tasting notes

Smoky leathery nose, somewhat evolved for such a young wine. Broad, rounded, and juicy, accessible for a young St. Estephe, but there's ample concentration and acidity to give the wine backbone, and the tannins are polished. Quite good length.

Bright nose and palate, firm fruit, summerfruit compte, quite dark, little oak.

Quite forward and quite fragrant fruit, good natural ripeness and nice balance and length, not the most robust of St Estephes, but a wine with good open fruit and quite a bit of charm.
