Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Located to the east of the village of Saint-Émilion, on one of the high points of the appellation and it extends over 20 hectares. Ch was promoted to "Saint-Emilion Grand cru classé" in 2006. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark Crimson with ripe fruit aromas & herb notes. On the palate black cherry & raspberry, currant-like, with tobacco & cacao notes. Dusty fine tannins, lingering finish ending with earthy mineral tones, drinkable now, but ‘12 has more L-T aging.

Big! Needs some years to resolve and integrate. For the vintage , a nice effort though you can't access it all today

Would like to try a different vintage - this one may have been too young. Almost overwhelmingly tannic.

Knuten doft. Fruktig smak. Relativt lång.
