The nose is savoury with peppered red cherry, with a touch of dried plum and chalk dust.
Nicely textured at the start, it has a slick presence through the middle, a second wine with a light substance not to mention a little backbone of tannin. This is a wine of freshness, with good energy and acid definition. It feels very complete, and holds up well on the finish.
The north of the Médoc experienced a generally rainy and mild winter, then becoming cold from mid-March, leading to a late but homogeneous budburst, followed by a strong vegetative growth. The hot and dry summer accelerated the ripening of the grapes, the alternation of cool nights and hot days developed their richness while maintaining their freshness.
This 2018 offers a ripe, very expressive fruit and a particularly velvety tannic structure. Elegant, luscious and fresh, with intense aromas of black fruit, this is a truly great vintage that has taken advantage of the exceptionally favourable weather conditions.
Deepest cherry red.
