Beautiful, deeply colored wine. The initially discreet bouquet opens gradually and quietly to offer a complete array of aromas ranging from notes of cassis, blackberry and spices to a cocktail of Fall flowers just picked with a very elegant hint of oak. The hallmarks of the terroir are definitely present on the palate in the elegant, still young tannins, balanced flavors and fine texture.
A wine still in the early days of great ageing potential. Once again, this cru could be shaking up the hierarchy of the Bordeaux grands crus. You will need about three years for its true depth and aromas to come to the fore, after which the typical expression of its “terroir” will go on developing for the next fifteen years at least.
