Description

Tasting Note
Deep, dark in appearance and tinged with crimson. Enticing lusciously ripe, red fruit-laden aromas combine on the bouquet with spicy, even smoky notes, quite typical of this Pessac-Leognan terroir. The lovely ripe fruit brings fleshy, well-balanced character on the palate, underpinned by powerful, rounded tannins, coated in generous richness and well-integrated oak. This harmonious wine culminates in a long, lasting finish”
