Tasting Note:

The minute cuvee, something in the region of 7500 bottles, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This, like the grand vin, is wonderfully aromatic and expressive, packed with wild berries and minerals. The texture is superb, plush, rich; velvety fruit cascades over the palate. This as usual is one of the most intense and complex second wines to be found in Bordeaux.
