The deep red colour of this cuvée sets the tone for the tasting: elegance and intensity. Beneath an spicy layer (nutmeg and toasted bread), the equally elegant bouquet unveils sustained, overripe dark and red fruit scents and earthy aromas. After a chewy attack, the ample, rounded structure unfolds, culminating in a long balanced finish. A wine that reveals all the richness of this exceptional terroir.
Can be enjoyed while young (2-3 years after vintage) but has cellaring potential for quite a few years more.
"the 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly in Bordeaux."
William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
“there are now even more stellar showings in bottle”
“2019 is an extremely high-quality and consistent vintage on Bordeaux’s Left Bank”.
