2019 vintage. A blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot according to the official website (whereas most journalists state 60% Cabernet Sauvignon). A mix of red and black fruit, typical Pessac-Léognan spiciness, with the Petit Verdot delivering violet notes. It has a very fresh mouthfeel with juicy fruit and refined tannins, combined with an attractive salinity and a long spicy finish. Very good indeed.

Everything a Bordeaux should be, from a great vintage. Luckily, this bottle survived storage at a run-down local wine store. While the label was badly damaged, the cork was in perfect shape , and the wine was fresh and full of flavor. Intense cherry and earth, followed by licorice and tobacco. A great wine and high quality per value.

45+ minute decant. Very dark red color. Nose is one of Napa Cabernet - wood, floral elements. The 14.5% alcohol shows throughout. Very tannic and deep wine that tastes more like Rioja or Tempranillo than Bordeaux. Interesting wine, but not really my style.
