The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry. It tastes like blackberry, black currant (cassis) and medium toast. The body is medium/full. The wine has coarse texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity.
Very dark garnet red hue. Decanted for 1 hours, drank 2 glasses over 2 hours. Nose has nice black fruit, blackberry, cassis, boysenberry, vanilla. The palate is plush, textured, pretty fruits, consistent with the nose, light toasted oak, fine grained tannins, medium finish, balanced and ready. Crowd pleaser.
Très opaque, presque noir, d'intensité moyenne au nez, avec des arômes marqués de cerise et de bois. Intense en bouche, suit le nez et bien équilibré, avec des tanins encore présents. C'est un bon vin qui, sans être très complexe, est agréable et tout en fruit, et qui pourra possiblement gagner encore en complexité.
A really successful wine this year but quite a modern style for an Haut-Medoc. Dark berry fruit mix, notes of graphite, some high quality oak flavors, dark chocolate, rather silky tannins, medium acidity, good weight and length, just sligthly chewy on the finish. Good paring with lamb. Already approachable now, not really a wine for the cellar imho, but should drink well for a few years. - 89 points
