On the palate, this wine truly shines. It has a medium to full body, with a round and silky texture that glides effortlessly across the tongue. The tannins are well-integrated and provide a smooth and velvety mouthfeel. The savory finish is long-lasting, leaving a lasting impression.

Noted wine critic James Suckling awarded this wine an impressive score of 94 points. He describes it as having a "baby Pavie" feel, highlighting its resemblance to the esteemed Château Pavie, the estate's grand vin. Jeb Dunnuck also awarded it 94 points, praising its remarkable purity of fruit, silky tannins, and great finish.

The blend is predominantly Merlot, with 66% of the varietal, followed by 21% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was aged in 50% new French oak, adding further depth and complexity.
