Dark pepper spices on the attack and a real grip through the length of the wine. 2014 is the first year that Petit Verdot is included in the blend of the first wine and it has translated into an undertone of urgency and subdued power. In general there is a lot of vineyard restructuring happening here from owner Alexandre de Bertmann and technical director Laurent Lebrun, an estate on the ascendancy. Lovely lift on the finish, one of the wines where the ageing potential in this vintage is clear. Very promising.
