<p>56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5.5% Cabernet Franc. Bright black and red berries, with highly polished supple tannins. An insistent power builds on the mid-palate, as does the pretty red berry perfume. A more forthright style than the <i>grand vin</i>. 14% abv. </p>
"55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. Ripe raspberry aromas and sweet spices, quite extrovert on the nose. The palate is plush and red berried – sweet redcurrants and red cherries, framed by fruit-coated tannins. A seductive Carruades.
