Tasting Note:

L'Hêtre 2016 is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged for 15 months in oak barrels. The nose is packed with intense aromas of Griotte, hedgerow fruit, spiced plums and cinnamon. There’s plenty of fleshy fruit on the palate, sweet loganberries, ripe cherries and ferrous rocks lead to a pure, refined, silky finish of crème de mûre, minerals and spices. This little sapling has plenty of potential.
