Tasting notes

07/04/2010

(94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot; the Grand Vin represents 40% of the whole.) Black-red, terrific expression of blackcurrant fruit, slightly smoky and already complex, really fine floral fruit, really fine clear depth and length, a tight style, firm and classic, full of energy and savoury fruit, excitingly precise, tannins in perfect balance. Drink 2018-40. 19.5 points
