Wine Review: The bouquet of this wine is mild, but yet inviting. On the palate, the wine is smooth, creamy, a bit dry, and has nice flavors. The finish is dry and extended. This was one of the best wines I tried at a large charity tasting that I attended in November. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Very intense colour. The very powerful nose features an excellent balance between fruit (blackberry, raspberry) and wood (liquorice, toasty notes). On the palate, the attack is full but very mild. This wine stands out with its fine length and imposing structure – a characteristic of great Pauillacs - made up of extremely smooth tannins. The finish shows no trace of aggressiveness and is very long.

Organic status: not organic
