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.
A very elegant Ducru, with cherries, blackcurrants and plums on the bouquet. The palate is fine almost elegant, the fruit is rich but a little subdued, maybe brooding and the long generous finish is enhanced by a savoury note.
Enjoy with roast ribs of beef and yorkshire pudding with a horseradish, crème fraiche and mustard sauce.
