Note from the winery in comparing the vintage “we can evoke a combination of the strength of the 2005, the flesh of the 2009, the subtlety of the 2010, and the inimitable charm of Château Margaux.
”Medium depth of color, it is a deep dark black ruby color. Attractive concentrated perfumed nose with attractive berry fruit, raspberry and mineral nuances. Medium-bodied, the wine exhibits good weight and concentration with pronounced fruit flavors. Fine silky tannins, it is well balanced with a solid core of fruit and fresh acidity. The wine is firm, elegant, though extremely young with a long lingering finish and huge potential in the future. JKW04/16
