Deep color, lovely cassis nose and lots of fruits. The nose has delicate notes of red fruits and spices; the palate is full‐bodied and powerful, showing with the typical freshness of the vintage. – 3 to 15 years aging potential

James Suckling – 93 points

2 Feb, 2018 – A very impressive wine with a ton of tannic power, but also great balance thanks to the fresh acidity. A beautifully made wine that you could easily mistake for a classed growth. With more complexity this would rate even more highly. You can drink it now, but there’s no hurry with this one!
