Masterful left-bank Bordeaux with great ageing potential
Opens with intense aromatics of fresh cassis, vanilla and dried rose petals. Firm and dry on the palate with a fleshy core of dark cherry, blackberry and plums along with notes of liquorice, mint and fresh pencil shavings. Generously rounded off with a savoury and persistent finish.
