Wine Description

(From 1979 Vintage) The wine that emerges from the vineyard never has the strength of a Petrus or other Merlot-dominated wines of the plateau, but it often has a perfume and elegance that recalls a top wine from the Medoc.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) This is a wine that had extreme intensity of electrifying tannins and acidity, with supercharged fruit. Full-bodied, yet agile and lively. It touches every taste bud on your palate. Chocolate mousse and fruit.
