Wine Details

Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Grand Cru Classe 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc. In 2012, the real Havana tobacco nose of the cru, plus the embers of a wood fire. The taste is strongly Cabernet Sauvignon, cassis and succulent red cherries - like eating the fruit. Very crisp and well-defined. Finishes both fresh and soft.
