Grapes: Merlot 54%, Cabernet Franc 46%
Deep dark black ruby with a youthful purple hue. Complex integrated nose with attractive berry fruit with floral nuances. Medium to full-bodied, it is smooth and supple with a solid core of ripe fruit, a pleasant texture and firm integrated tannin structure. A little lighter than one might expect given the chateau but already imminently enjoyable and approachable. 90 points. JKW04/13
