(From 2007 Vintage) Very smoky damson fruit behind a brooding nose. Attractive in a robust style, very dense and dark, well-balanced with corduroy-textured tannins and good freshness. Long. Good fruit definition. An excellent example.
(From 2001 Vintage) A deep garnet with glossy highlights. Nose is slightly peppery with scents of soft fruit, such as blackcurrant and raspberry. Merlot is predominant and marked by an honest attack that is well rounded and full. A supple wine, with a soft tannic structure, well balanced and not overpowered by wood. A very well balanced and elegant wine with an extensive lingering finish.
