Wine Description

(From 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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) The 2004 has a bouquet that is still somewhat reserved, with aromas of leather, vanilla and tobacco. The wine is still very young. You will appreciate its finesse, elegance and the nobility of the cabernet sauvignon grown in gravel, its favourite type of soil.
