    TASTING NOTES

    A deep ruby-coloured wine, the Merlot flavours intermingled with overripe berried fruit, redcurrant and cassis; excellent depth, purity and balance. The palate is supple and creamy at the attack, then ample and rounded with fine tannins and a deliciously fruity finish. The overall impression is one of elegance and intense aromas.

    TASTING NOTES

    The deep purple tints at rim are proof of the youth of this broodingly red-hued, almost black, wine. On swirling, the nose displays notes of ripe Merlot, cassis and liquorice. Crunchy on attack, the palate is ample and rich, with harmonious flavours over soft tannins. A Saint Emilion of great distinction and elegance.
