96 James Suckling:

"This is so delicious with blackcurrants, spice, sweet tobacco, lavender and roses. Full-bodied, tight and very polished with gorgeous texture and finesse. Shows tannin tension at the end. A blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon, the rest cabernet franc. Better after 2022."

Winemaker notes:

Superb color, dark garnet red, deep and intense. Spicy and subtle nose; great elegance and aromatic complexity with notes of ripe fruit (blueberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, blackberry…), opening on toasted and fine woody notes. Frank and soft attack with savory, silky and well-integrated tannins. Full, round and fleshy palate ending with a magnificent aromatic persistence full of finesse.

Blend: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere, 9% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
