The best in show. Tasted at UGC Bordeaux and it was hands down for the quality and complexity. Amazing Cabernet Franc, complex, mineral, deep, ranging from red cherry jam, mint, violets, chocolate, coffee and so on. Very long finish and round tannins.

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

I have seen huge critical acclaim for this wine at various outlets. A great wine, that has improved in recent years, but nothing to make me purchase a case.
