Our 2017 is from one of the top Premier Grand Cru Classé properties of St-Émilion which is as good as it gets. The wine is predominantly merlot with a hint of cabernet franc from grapes grown on the best south facing slopes at the top of the St-Émilion plateau. As a result, it is forward and beginning to drink well already (if you decant) and it will improve and has a good 7-10 years at least ahead of it.
The wine has wonderful dark berry fruit flavours, angelic elegance with great structure & balance - a wine of enormous class. The Château label fetches around £3750 a case duty paid. Buy as much as you can afford...
Tasting note: Restrained class & power here that develops in the glass. Rich red berry fruit with lots of complexity and just the right amount of new oak. The Merlot is deliciously ripe & blends well with fragrance of the Cabernet Franc. Young but already showing its immense class. We recommend you open the wine an hour in advance or decant it.
