Consultant Claude Gros has turned out a gorgeous wine made from a blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet cassis kirsch licorice and spring flowers jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple wine. Dense fruit loads of glycerin striking purity and palate penetration are all beautifully presented in this impressive wine which remains under the radar for most consumers. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Aromas of sweet plums and flowers follow through to a full body with soft and silky tannins and a milk chocolate aftertaste. Tangy and delicious. Best after 2016.

Lovely lift to the aromas of currant flowers and smoked meat. The palate boasts the silky texture of a much more expensive wine with its chocolatey ripeness leavened by minerals and flowers. Shows a restrained sweetness and very good definition. Good firm wine with ripe building tannins.

50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot from a tiny 0.5 hectare vineyard near Cantenac-Brown. Soils are mixed gravel and clay. Aged in 100% new oak. Deep garnet color through to the rim. Modern nose of cassis freshly picked... 50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot from a tiny 0.5 hectare vineyard near Cantenac-Brown. Soils are mixed gravel and clay. Aged in 100% new oak. Deep garnet color through to the rim. Modern nose of cassis freshly picked blackberry tar dark chocolate and a hint of menthol. The palate is lively with lots of bright fruit character as well as a cocoa note. Long and exciting finish that blends elegance and power the way Margaux should. An interesting and well-made wine. Enjoy 2016-2026.
