This requires decanting and some time to open up but once it does it’s an absolute treat. Blackberries, plum and dates combine with leather and cedar on the palate, with fine-boned tannins supporting notes of chocolate and cafè latte. Smooth and refined, long and complex.
The wine reflects the vineyard make-up – around 80% Merlot with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon – with 15 months ageing in French oak barrels adding depth, richness and finesse to this fine Médoc.
Enjoy with roast red meats.
