It doesnandrsquo;t get much better than this wine from the much acclaimed vintage of 2005. This winery was once a famed estate in the mid 1800s that got an intensive makeover when it was purchased in 1993. The clay and chalk soil give the grapes the perfect conditions for a long and consistent growing season. A near equal blend of Cabernet and Merlot gives this wine a fruit-forward flavor with a delicate balance of ripe fruit and round, smooth tannins.

A lovely clear and clean purply colour, with violet highlights.

A lovely clear and clean purply colour, with violet highlights.Extrovert-develops nicely, with notes of ripe red-black fruits (raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry sloe berry and bluberry). Very fresh, evolving into a toasty mocha crustiness that altogether brings a nuttiness that is very agreeable. Very smooth with good body and good quality tannins without in any way being harsh, an impression of fruitiness, well-rounded, full-bodied wine. After aeration, one finds secondary aromas on the nose, making a happy marriage of ripe grapes and spices well-balanced in mouth, savoury, with an excellent lenghty finish suave. A good fresh, aromatic wine, with a fine ageing potential, a good value that can be kept in your cellar for several years. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot

We found this to be a light and pleasant wine with bright cherry, spice, herb, and pepper aromas. A supple texture and bright acidity finish it off.

A big, rich Bordeaux with loads of fruit and elegant tannin. It has a pure texture with great balance; a mouthwatering, chewy palate is bursting with black fruits and spice box notes. A complex wine with aging potential.
