    TASTING NOTES

    Sumptuously clad in deepest burgundy red, this wine is redolent with intense black fruit aromas, a touch of oak and hints of vanilla. The same fine complexity is found on the palate, which is sound and robust, with a creamy attack. The palate opens with fresh fruit aromas, borne along by promising tannins. A fine wine that reflects the quality of the work both in the vineyard and in the winery.

    AGEING

    Drinking nicely from 2019 but has fine ageing potential of 5-10 years.

    TASTING NOTES

    Crafted with passion by Daniel Ybert in this vineyard of Merlot Noir, this wine presents the richness, elegance and classicism typical of Saint Emilion. The nose is a mixture of ripe fruit with toasty notes, vanilla and a hint of leather. The chewy attack supplied the Merlot is offset by fine vivacity which imparts freshness and a creamy texture. The persistent finish is borne along by taut tannins wrapped in generous extract. Very well-balanced wine, best drunk after a few years' cellaring.

    AGEING

    Drinking nicely from 2021 but has fine ageing potential of 5-6 years.
