The nose offers its characteristic elegance and aromatic richness. Notes of liquorice and cherry are immediately apparent, and as the wine opens aromas of sweet chestnut, nutmeg, crème de cassis, and tobacco appear, all well-integrated with delicate toasted oak. The palate is beautifully balanced; medium- to heavy-bodied, with smooth tannins. Cooked black fruit flavours appear and underscore notes of sweet spice, which linger on the palate.
Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
