(From 2000 Vintage)
The fact that owner Patrick Moulin used less than 50% of his crop for the Grand Vin goes some way to explaining why this wine is so good in 2000. The rich strawberry and cassis fruit is concentrated yet delicate, combining purity, balance and sophisticated charm. A wonderful wine.
Drinking from 2008-2020.

Decanter(From 2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Evocative sweet berry fruit and complementary oak. Luscious with density and depth. Finely coated tannins with a fine future ahead. Drink 5-10+ years.
