“This is a highly enticing wine that is drinking very well already. Packed with flavor, it is aromas are classically Bordelais, starting with evergreen, damp forest floor and cigar wrapper. The concentrated fruit flavors taste of black plums and cassis with gentle red cherry nuances on the lightly smoky and deeply mineral finish. Juicy at the hearty core with bracing acidity and wellgroomed, lightly clingy tannins, this pure and focused red has just a bit of everything right now as well as the gusto to mature nicely in the mid-term. This 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon blend from vines averaging 30 years of age brilliantly over-delivers. 90/100. QPR.” Christy Canterbury, journalist and Master of Wine, June 2021.
