Description

Bordeaux wines have evolved a lot in the last 30-40 years and this wine speaks of the new Modern style especially considering this Medoc wine is Merlot dominant (60%), typically a Cabernet dominant region.
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet-Sauvignon

Smells

a wonderful interplay of berry fruits, raspberries, plums, crushed herbs, forest floor, cedar and vanilla.

Tastes

a generous, mouth filling wine that exudes concentration, power yet retaining a silky smoothness. Heaven in the glass. The dark chocolate and mocha flavours fit perfectly with the Black Doris plum fruits, enveloped in fine tannins, giving balance and harmony. Cellar 8-10 years.

An excellent Cru Bourgeois for the New World palate. A beautiful garnet colour in the glass, and ample complexity of dark fruit and secondary flavors, vanillin, spice, and grippy tannins that give it a lingering finish. 4.5/5
