Ideally positioned right opposite Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, this 5ème cru classé is now one of the new great wines from Bordeaux and has garnered a lot of attention.
Fragrant and full bodied with blackcurrants and hint of tobacco, dry leaves and leather. Chunky tannins and very smooth texture overall .
“A deep garnet core. The nose is firmly moving towards secondary aromas, touches of dried leaves, blackberry leaf, leather, mulberry fruit with mint just developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced, a soft texture on the entry, lithe tannins, just a little leafy and quite understated. Not a wine to intellectualize over, the finish quite tarry and a little foursquare. Moderate length…” – 89pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, October 2009
