Tasting Notes

Deep and concentrated in appearance.

A seductive bouquet emitting aromas of ripe fruits, liquorice and a smoky character often found in the terroirs of Pessac-Leognan.

The power of the delicate, rounded tannins is accompanied by generous rich character and volume. The wine’s harmonious presence culminates in a long, well-balanced finish, with well-integrated oak character.
