Tasting Note:

Produced from 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc, the seventh incarnation of 'G' is as impressive as ever, perhaps more so. The Cabernet Francs are massale selections from Lafleur and the Guinaudeaus are just starting to take Merlot cuttings from their flagship estate too. The limestone gives the fruit a real brightness and high toned mineral quality. There is plenty of cassis, spice and redcurrant on the intense mid palate. The overall sense is that of harmony and perfect tension. The fruit is vital and sensual; there is also an intensely mineral and saline character which complements the lavish fruit, and the tannins are wonderfully sleek yet ever-present.
