Purple garnet in color, the 2016 displays an intense nose of elderberry, blackcurrant, blueberry and fresh raspberry, complemented by notes of toast and humus. The dense palate displays good volume right from the start, and builds on a tight structure of ripe, fresh tannins. Meaty, full-bodied and powerful, it develops robustly towards a concentrated tannic finish with magnificent length.
Try pairing with a tournedos Rossini or roast salt marsh lamb.
Blend: 53% Merlot, 38% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot

A broad-shouldered Haut-Médoc that feels true to the vintage, fleshed out with cassis and blackberry fruits and confident tannins, traces of heat through the mid-palate making it a little uncharacteristic of the appellation, but this has swagger and interest – an excellent wine.
