Tasting Note:

Daniel and Florence Cathiard along with their talented Technical Director, Fabien Teitgen continue to raise the bar at this high-flying Pessac estate. We're huge fans of their sumptuous, sleek style. The 2021 is very much in the house style but reflects the tension and nerve of the vintage. Flowers over dark fruits, perfumed, spicy, hints of camphor, liquorice and dark cocoa nibs. The palate is beautifully textured, packed with decadent fruits and spices, layers of velvety plums and creme de mûre. This is seductive yet serious, finishing with beautifully judged tannins that tantalize the tastebuds. 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.
