"88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot. Saturated ruby colour. Aromas of cassis, graphite and crushed earth minerality. The palate is a notch more than medium-bodied, honed and inky-dark, the fine blackcurrant fruit framed by chalky tannins and lifted by fresh acidity. Very Pauillac – a wine of texture, with enough flesh on the bone. Cropped at just 15hlha. The grand vin represents 60% of production. 12.5% of press wine. 13% abv.
