Tasting Notes

This got my vote as one of the stars of Pauillac. The 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot shows rich dark red and black fruits with a lovely appealing underlying sweetness. The palate is elegant, quite powerful and has real sinew and muscular tannins which encase the sweet fruit and bright freshness – Neil Goldie A concentrated, almost raisined bouquet showing real power and intensity. The palate is firm and structured, a powerful Cabernet dominated Pauillac with an inky intensity, ripe cassis fruits and impressive tannin structure. It is perfectly balanced and is certainly one of Pauillac’s top performers in 2021 – John Townend

Vinification

Harvest 24th September - 8th October. A yield of 40hl/ha. Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in 75% new oak barrels for 16-18 months.
