Tasting Note:

Paul Pontallier explained that selections are stricter than ever now they have a third label. The grand vin will account for just 36% of the crop. This is initially quite reserved; after aeration a classically styled bouquet of potpourri, lilacs, gravel and beautifully pure and seductive crème de cassis emerge. The palate is as seductive and floral and the nose suggests with wonderfully clear cassis and wild bramble flavours interspersed with a touch of coal dust and stony minerality. This is definitely not a fruit bomb; it is classically perfumed with a hint of musk and incense and bound together with intense yet supple fruit. As one would expect from this noble terroir, there is something rather ethereal and wonderful. There is a silkiness and ripeness to the tannins; this has real structure and the presence, harmony and balance to age for many decades. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot.
