"84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Saturated ruby-purple colour. Gentle aromas of raspberries, violets and summer roses, a delight. The palate is sweetly red-berried, with fine fruit-coated tannins and juicy acidity. The medium body makes for an approachable Gruaud Larose which will be accessible earlier.
C&B Score: 17.5
Drinking dates: 2028-40"
