Tasting notes


<li> intense, concentrated style <li> showing good ageing potential<br><br> The Listrac-Medoc AC covers 646 ha and its better wines deliver fine character for the price. This 97 offers plenty of flavour and has more than ample Médoc character to please


Intense ruby colour and aromas of blackcurrants, mint, ripe plum and spice. Polished, integrated yet concentrated on the palate. Soft tannins, but sense of restrained power suggests this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for another 4-5 years.

Full and ripe. Quite complex. Balanced and attractive with good concentration.
