Following the stunning fragrance of acacia flowers, blueberries, espresso and graphite, this prodigious wine hits the palate with amazing blue and black fruits, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel, incredible purity, texture and length.
Beautifully focused notes of figs and ripe fruit on the nose, this is very perfumed. A lot of material in this wine, the center palate is incredible, lasting for minutes. This is full-bodied and super silky with fine tannins.
Deep, sweet aromas and flavors of black raspberry, cassis, graphite and licorice. Wonderfully lush, silky and seamless, with a near-perfect balance of fruit and acidity.
Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and a long aftertaste of toasty oak and ripe fruit.
44% Cabernet Franc. 22 months in barrels and long on the lees. ...Very heady opening out and in very good balance.
Promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe A in Sept 2012
