Tasting Note:

After a string of successful vintages, we were really disappointed by the 2021 sample we tasted. Green bell pepper, notes of pyrazines, it also seems evolved with a hint of rot. The tannins also seem astringent. We will reserve judgement as we only tasted this once at the St Julien UGC, where there were some perplexing wines. 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
