Tasting Note:

Jean-Claude Berrouet, the former wine-maker at Petrus has been consulting here for a few years and the change of style is really taking effect. We felt that the 2016 vintage was the best yet. That was until we tasted the marvellous 2018. Gone are the over the top blousy aromas, this is focussed and pure. The bouquet is just on the right side of flamboyant. Notes of kirsch, damsons, high toned graphite and raspberries. Plummy bittersweet salty fruit coats the palate. Beautiful texture – there is lovely detail and lots of summer berries with a real sense of tension. A very good effort. 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
