Wine Details



Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) A very beautiful dark colour, very dense, almost opaque. A tight carmine rim with good brilliance. The first nose is intense although a little shy for the moment, indicating the greatness of the vintage. Then we have crushed strawberries, raspberries, dark chocolate, roast herbs. At the end we find a touch of liquorice, and the first notes of truffle appear, still hidden under the richness of this wine. In the palate the entry is very plump, concentrated and rich with a texture of very tightknit tannins. The finish is a real cocktail of red fruit, cocoa and roast spices. A good, long, lingering finish for this keeping wine. Already showing elegance, this bottle will develop to reveal its true character in around ten years from now.

    This wonderfully extracted effort reflects all of the ripeness and rich fruit to be found in 2005 clarets, and it does so while staying remarkably well-balanced. It is a mouthfilling Merlot, but one that is also supple and silky, and it ends with a very long, ripe-cherry finish with immense fruity substance offsetting its slight but evident heat. Set it aside for at least five years of smoothing.
