Description

In 2006 the wine is epitomised by balance and finesse. It has enormous tannins but not only are they very fine, they are serenely cloaked in dense crushed blackberry fruit, earthy spice and minerally coffee hints. The wine's cool classic edge merely serves to further reinforce its silky, feminine style - well for a St Estèphe anyway. Very good indeed.
