The 2019 is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, and will be aged for 18 months in oak. Deep ruby in colour with an opulent, fragrant nose of spiced plums, cedar, vanilla and morello cherry. The palate is fleshy and round, with no hard edges to detract from the ripe forest fruit at the core. Layers of plum and cherry danishes are lifted to more floral tones by fresh acidity. The finish is succulent but equally vibrant. Tasted in Bordeaux.
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Barrel sample.
Fresh, red-berry aroma with an almost burgundian edge. Palate round, juicy and lifted with finely etched tannins. Harmonious and almost approachable now. (JL)
