Description

This is a mighty wine, brooding and monolithic. The grapes only come from the grand plateau around the château and from vines over 50 years old. Extraction was only before the alcoholic fermentation. Descriptors are invidious for a wine so intense: smoke, tar, leather, an infusion of distillate of sloe. Awesome. Drink 2030-2050.

Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot
