(2009 Vintage) The second wine of the property was established in 1985 following the acquisition by Suntory group. It comes from vines that average 30 years old today and planted on gravelly soils for fine Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for some clay. He received the same care as the Grand Vin, with a search for maturity and concentration in the vineyard, a plot vinification and aging adapted to its tannic structure. The wine is characterized by round tannins, aromas of red and black fruits on his youth and still shows good potential.
Can drink 2011 and younger and okay to drink now. Younger wine. Let air for 3-4 hours for best results. Keep room temperature. Really good and good with a wide variety of things
RMB 382 at bordeautheque... Nous l'avons dégusté avec Jacques Blaise, le vin est bon, mais ne vaut pas le prix qu'on a payé.
No aroma, not that good Consumed on 23 Aug
