(2007 Vintage) A beautiful perfume filled wine with licorice, black raspberries, jam and coffee. This also comes through on the palate, along with black plums and anise. A lovely elegant wine from Saint Emilion.
This is currently one of most exciting estates in Bordeaux, producing wines that combine incredible richness with real St Emilion terroir character. Rightfully promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé status in 2006 this biodynamically-farmed estate has made another highly impressive wine in 2007. The nose is brilliant: elegant, rich and complex with dark chocolate notes; the creamy, supple palate boasts ripe tannins while the black and red fruit builds slowly to an unbelievably long, pure finish. With immense breeding, this is another testament to the magic being worked here by Nicolas Thienpont 92-94 RP
