  • Winner Silver Medal 2014 France Councours Des Grands Vins De France a Macon

    "Dominated by 85% Merlot, this classic right bank Bordeaux blend is packed with juicy fruit characters and wild blackberry; some notes of fresh tobacco and spice confirm that the wine has matured gracefully and is slowly reaching its ideal drinking time. It is generous and structured; the fleshy tannins carry the fruit to a very respectable length. There is attention to detail in this wine, 2012 was a challenge in Bordeaux, this wine raised above it. Note that the ripe tannins help the wine keeping its poise in an open bottle for 48h, in fact it opens to a new range of characters, no small feat indeed." Tasted in August 2016
