"75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautifully aromatic sweet raspberry fruit and cedar spices. The palate is pliant and luminous, with a salty refreshing aspect and inviting drinkability. This wears the season lightly. 14.4% abv. Picked 6th to 21st September. The yield was 35hl/ha, which Alexandre Thienpont described as “good”.
C&B Score: 18+
