(55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 1% Malbec) The nose is fine and and a bit powerful. It reveals notes of black berries, blackberry (mûre) and plum associated with touches of Ceylon tea, licorice and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity and mineral. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of raspberry, black berries and blackberry (mûre) combined with a few notes of cassis as well as small woody notes, chocolate and fine notes of espresso. Tannins are fine and slightly grainy. Good length.
