This is quite ripe with a big core of linzer torte cassis and blackberry fruit but well-supported by graphite and melted licorice notes. Offers ample breadth and depth with honest grip through the finish. A rather polished style for a Pessac. Should settle in nicely with mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2020. 5000 cases made.

Deep ruby/purple its classic Graves nose of tobacco leaf burning embers and scorched earth is backed up by sweet cassis and black cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied but overall very elegant and velvety this is a complex relatively evolved delicious and interesting wine that should drink nicely for another 7-10 years. Showing better from bottle than it did from cask this blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet which tips the scales at 15.1% natural alcohol is a sleeper of the vintage. None other than Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant and this is clearly the best wine ever produced from this 35-acre estate sandwiched between Carbonnieux and Smith-Haut-Lafitte near the village of Martillac.
