Tasting Note:

This fabulous terroir on the limestone terrace and the clay on limestone slopes of the Cote is planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This is the perfect antidote to thick, modern, over-extracted St Emilion - this is all about the high-toned flavours only great limestone terroir can produce. Notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate box, fine herbs and cigar tobacco leap from the glass. There is wonderful intensity of fruit, svelte, bright berry flavours and a real depth here that is most alluring. All this fruit is securely wrapped in a fine tannic structure and a sensational, mouth-watering acidity, which brings real harmony and balance to this wine. Outstanding.
