"56% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot. A nose of phenomenally pure, dark, pristine fruit, with cedar and dried herb spices. The palate is fresh and brightly dark-berried on the entry, with cassis and bitter cherry on the mid-palate, framed by fine, fruit-coated tannins. The grand vin represents 55% of production. Cropped at a very low 22hl/ha. 30% less than last year was made.
C&B Score: 17.5
