Helped by famous oenologist Eric Boissenot, they have significantly boosted the quality of their wines, constantly achieving over 90pts from various critics, while prices have stayed within reach so far.
Aged for 14 months in oak barrels (60% new). Complex and elegant aromas of cherry and blackcurrant with hints of sandalwood and tobacco. A refined Bordeaux with good depth and velvety tannins. Great length.
So aromatic with crushed currants, raspberries and blackberries with hints of graphite and lead pencil. Full-bodied and very tight with beautiful tannins and a long, flavorful finish. The tannins really build at the end of the palate. Try from 2024.- 95 pts James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
