The 2019 is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere. The wine will largely be aged in inox, with 30% in barrel. Vibrant ruby in the glass, with a nose of bright red and darker forest fruits. The palate is sweet, smoky and generous, with soft and integrated tannins. Charming and fleshy, this seamless and spicy wine should offer lots of early drinking pleasure. Tasted in Bordeaux.
85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Carmenère. Barrel sample.
Fresh fruit aroma and flavour with a savoury edge. Palate lively, juicy, with light, chalky tannins. Simple but appetising. (JL)
