During a merchant tasting, decanted for 2h. Medium purple. Expressive nose of dark fruit, toast and a touch of truffle. This is quite toasty but in a pleasant way, integrated. Medium bodied, well balanced palate, soft tannins. Well made for 2013. Early drinking but not harsh or watery even in this weak vintage.
Floral, black cherry and tobacco in character, the wine is medium bodied, soft, forward and fresh with more dark cherries in the finish. From 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot, the wine reached 12.83% alcohol with a pH of 3.69. The wine is aged in 50% new oak. With yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare, the Grand Vin represents 55% of the harvest. 90-91 Pts
