A very severe selection for the first wine has resulted in a leap in quality for the second wine at this Château. The grapes for this wine come from the central part of the St Julien commune. A super second wine from a "super second" Classed Growth property.
This is a very untypical vintage and in this respect this wine is rather advanced. It is nonetheless immensely pleasurable. The intense bouquet of juicy black and blueberry, some black currant and cassis, with leather and tobacco notes, reign you in! The palate delivers a big rush of syrupy black and blueberry, some cedar, and very ripe tannins. A very impressive wine.
Enjoy with roast ribs of beef and yorkshire pudding with a horseradish, crème fraiche and mustard sauce.
