Discover Pomerol's Largest Historic Estate
A beautiful, glittering crimson; the wine has a complex and seductive nose with aromas of black fruit, especially black cherry, violet, and vanilla. Richly flavoured and remarkably well-balanced, it opens with notes of black fruit and subtle spice, which fill out on an ample and complex mid-palate sustained by the caress of refined, silky tannins, leading into a long and elegant finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
From Pomerol's largest, and arguably most historic estate comes a blend of 79% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc. There's very much a light touch to the oak ageing with 12 months in barrique (18% New, 82% 1-3 years). This Grand Vin is typically lighter in style than your typically dense Pomerol giving it an approachability in its youth. Add in the fact that the average age of the vines here are 50+ years old. There's an interesting mix of elegance and rusticity here and this wine is drinking really well in its youth!
