This is a fantastic, engaging Bordeaux. Of all those we tried, this Bordeaux was punching above well above its weight in terms of being just an outstanding wine - easy going, with enough soft tannins to really leave an impression.
Aromas of cassis and dark berry fruits lead to a rounded palate with supple blackberry and plum flavours and a delicate spice note. Vibrant colour. Long, pure finish.
