Managed by Jean Eugène Borie SA, & her daughter Sabine Coiffe & her son Bruno-Eugène, the 3rd generation of the Borie family to head estate, with close links among the 5 families of successive owners. A blend of 95% Cab Sauv & 5% Merlot, in 100% new French oak, aromas of ripe black fruits with espresso & smoky herb notes. On the palate currants & blackberry with pepper, cigar and oak. Fine soft tannins, perfect acidity balance, lingering ending with an earthy mineral character. Wow! This needs a few years. Tasting Sample.
