This is the one that’s 500m from Petrus. Wrapper leaf, cocoa nibs, raspberry. The Cab Franc component is brown and mature, not green. Fantastic acidity and gentle tannins. First rate. #tournefeuille #lalandedepomerol

On the nose: toasted oak, sweet plum, graphite, slight smoke. On the tongue: pear/plum, spice, clay, a nice minerality. Tannins are present and noticeable but sandy in nature. Would like to see this wine again in 2 years.

Lots of smoke and bacon fat and stewed plum. Big, bold, racy.

Smooth and jammy, perfect to wash down a huge bbq haul.
