Pauillac - Grand Cru Classé
99/100 James Suckling
- When to drink this wine To be enjoyed from 2028 to 2050+.
- Tasted by James Suckling in 2022: "The aromas of this wine are truly astonishing, with a medley of spices and dried flowers, as well as currants, sweet plums and even some peaches. It's full-bodied, with layers of ripe fruit and ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate overall, but still elegant and pure. This is a pure, succulent wine. Like perfectly ripe, crushed grapes. The length is rather endless. The tannins are developing. A fabulous young red. 35% amphora and the rest in 50% new oak and 15% one-year-old oak. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. To be tried after 2028, but an absolute pleasure to taste now."
