An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by sweet black raspberry black cherry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with notions of licorice and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and supple textured this sexy Bordeaux should be consumed over the next 5-8 years.

Chocolate and currants with a solid core of fruit and polished tannins. Very structured.

Yields limited to 45 hl/ha; and average age of vines is 30 years. 14% alcohol. The complex nose of spring flowers and black fruit shows intense terroir expression of tar creosote and fresh turned earth. On the palate power and concentration emerge to showcase black fruit and dynamic earth tones. Medium bodied and medium to high in acid the wine is fresh on the palate and complex. The tannins provide a small grip to balance the fruit nicely. Claude Gros consults.
