Tasting Note:

Alexandre Thienpont described his 2015 as 'gentle strength'. An apposite appraisal of yet another masterful VCC. Produced from 80% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and just 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is very definitely a Merlot vintage for Alexandre. The Merlots bring power, structure and provides the framework; the Cabernets lend a freshness, fragrance and balance. As with Petrus, VCC is quietly authoritative. It is all about poise and balance. This is almost inconspicuous such is the harmony and gentleness of touch. It is beautifully fragrant with aromas of bilberry, mulberry, sensual damsons, cassis, incense and red cherry. The palate is texturally superb; a sumptuous, sleek array of floral fruit and spice. It is so graceful, one doesn't even detect the 14.6% of alcohol. Wonderful!
