RatingNot Yet Rated

Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Fram from the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, this is a brilliant wine. A striking bouquet of red currant, cassis and dark cherry is laced with exotic spice and violet. The medium-bodied palate shows exceptional depth and concentration with wonderful finesse. This stunner has a bright future, but it really shouldn’t be touched until 2025.

This wine is impressive both from its structure and its fruit, one of the stars of the vintage in Saint-Émilion. It has great weight, concentration as well as style and aging potential. The ripe fruit shines through the structure, promising an elegant maturity.
