2020 vintage. Tasted this morning at the Château with Caroline Frey. Just bottled a week ago. Another great effort after the splendid 2019. Also tasted the 2021 primeur which is a great success for the vintage with more Cabernet Sauvignon than usual.

Perfectly stored example. Needed a few minutes to strut it’s stuff but when it did Wowie. Dark bramly fruit, soft tannins (but still some grip) and a lovely soily profile with a finish that goes on for days. I can’t imagine there are too many well stored examples as this outside the chateau. Dare I say it was still young?

Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice, cedar and flinty aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice!

The vintage does not have a great reputation and indeed there’s an austerity to it, which I actually kind of enjoy. It tastes old school. There is some sweet black currant, morello cherry and cassis at the core, some wood and burned coffee notes, wrapped in astringent tannins. A curmudgeon but it cracks a warm smile every now and then

Clean slightly subdued, merlot prevelant on nose medium bodied earthy and delicious with porcini risotto.
