Written Notes

Tasted in April 2016. 90% Merlot + 10% Cabernet Franc, yield per ha 30 hl, vinified in 100% new oak. Aromatic nose of sweet blueberry/blackberry fruit, stylish, well-knitted, silky fruit and tannin, long finish. Very high quality here - seems close to 2005 vintage.

  • 94p
Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Expressive but elegant nose with dark berries, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate. On the palate firm tannins, juicy fruit, well balanced character with convincing length.
  • 94p
Ruby. Dark fruits, mint and spices nose, eucalyptus. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, rounded, leaner body, quite elegant. 88-90
  • 89p
