Nose

It comes galloping out of the glass with exuberant notes of baked black cherries, plum preserves and black raspberries plus suggestions of licorice, candied violets and fallen leaves with a waft of melted chocolate.

Palate

Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers bags of youthful black fruits with seriously spicy sparks and a beautifully plush texture, finishing long with a compelling mineral kick.

Growing Conditions

In this 2017 vintage, the Merlots on the part of the Pomerol plateau that is mainly clayey offer unctuosity and structure, whereas the Merlots on the gravelly-sandy terroirs bring the finesse and roundness. As for the Cabernet Francs, they are once again decisive on these same great terroirs, bringing a pleasant balance to the first wine blend, marrying power, elegance and complexity.
