A brilliant wine, one of the best ever at this property. Straight from the first nose you feel an added
dimension and aromatic complexity to this bottle. The diversity of flavours tumbles out on the attack,
from brambled autumnal fruits to tighter, fresher black cherry and cassis notes. The body is deeply
coloured, full of life and pleasure, with rich, deep cassis and high but generous alcohol that's not
intrusive but showing through in the smooth texture. It was great En primeur and is even better today.
1% Petit Verdot finishes the blend.
