Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics...a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years.
Delicately smoky nuances complement dark plum and fresh blackcurrant on the subdued nose. Lively flavors of red cherry, violet, minerals and bitter chocolate show less fat but more cut than those of the Langoa Barton...
More fragrant and a touch leafier but still with sweet dark fruit. Delicious on the palate - has everything: freshness of fruit and acidity, tannins that are ripe and firm but in the background and a long juicy finish.
