The wine is a dark and intense cherry red.
The highly refined nose reveals perfectly ripe fruit. Ripe bilberry and blackcurrant aromas combine harmoniously with floral notes. With airing, the nose unfolds on pepper and spice balanced by elegant notes of graphite and blonde tobacco, bringing charm and nobility to an extensive range of aromas.
The full and dense attack exhibits exceptionally well-rounded and silky tannins.
The ample mid-palate abounds in black fruit along with cocoa flavours and biscuity notes, leading into a full-bodied and remarkably persistent finish, the sign of a great vintage.
Its density and substance make the 2016 vintage comparable with the finest so far this century.
Grape blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 83% / Merlot 15% / Cabernet Franc 1% / Petit Verdot 1%
