    VINTAGE 2009

    TASTING NOTES

    This 2009 vintage is a beautiful red hue, deeply coloured to rim, and offers up aromas of ripe black fruit combined with that hint of brioche typical of extremely mature vintages. Finesse and elegance on the palate accompany slightly spicy notes of red and black berries, enveloped in velvety extract from the Merlot. A rich, intense and charming wine with plump tannins that lend it roundness and a lingering finish. An ideal match for red meat, dishes with character, and cheese.

    AGEING

    Cellar for four or five years before enjoying this bottle.

    VINTAGE 2010

    TASTING NOTES

    The result of one of the greatest Bordeaux vintages, this wine has all the elegance and refinement typical of the very best the Médoc has to offer. Its deep crimson hue makes it beautiful to behold, while the bouquet of jammy fruit and toasted and vanilla notes is heaven to the nose. The palate reveals well-bred, elegant tannins that provide a structure for creamy extract. Contrasting with the powerful, warming flavours, this wine has a freshness and remarkable balance, resulting in a long finish of black fruit, earthy flavours and a hint of spice.

    AGEING

    A decidedly great wine, ready for drinking from 2014.
