Community Tasting Note

    April 19, 2013 - First bottle from a recently acquired case. Pristine condition. 77% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc. Medium intense bright red, lively, very little browning at the edges; classic Saint-Emilion nose, complete, good depth, mature, harmonious; on the palate well-balanced, medium-weight, softened but not completely resolved tannins, harmonious and flattering but no lack of grip and structure, harmonious; good length. The vintage that marked the start of the revival of this Château that led to its regaining of the GCC status in 2006. Lovely wine, at peak but with time in hand. Now - 2018.
