  • Tasting: This vintage, made from plot selections, is superb in its concentration. Revised in 2020 to rival the most prestigious Bordeaux wines. It reveals bright Merlot fruit, delicate oak and a creamy mouth with silky tannins. Delicious in its youth, it reveals an even more complex and harmonious bouquet with age.
