Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) With its deep, almost black colour, this wine appears to be wearing evening dress. A lively attack, both full and incisive, with scents of liquorice and cashew. The wine’s fresh, lively impression does not mask the perfect maturity of the tannins. Typically Bordelais elegance and classicism spring to mind. A good bottle for laying down, this wine will be best from 2011 with a family pot-au-feu and many other dishes.
