The Sommelier’s Advice:

Intense and young purple in colour with high viscosity. The nose is clean, still fairly closed with hints of dark plums, cherries and some toasted oak. The palate is rich and full-bodied, the acidity is fresh, nice dark fruit, slightly tannic and touched by oak at present, good length.

A very good example of a family chateau with a great terroir surrounded by top classified wineries.
