Description

On the palate, the subdued fruit on the attack is a reminder that the right bank struggled in 2014 to achieve the same level of success as the exceptional 2015s and 2016s. But this is not a wine to dismiss in any way.

A blend of 40% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, there is dark cassis fruit here, with well-worked silky tannins and a restrained elegance that is given a smile by a coffee bean and smoked almond edge.

A well-placed wine, working cleverly within its confines, not overstepping them, with huge potential for enjoyment. Drink in six to eight years, which needs to soften a little.

Drink 2022 - 2038
