This is the first vintage under Joséphine Duffau-Lagarrosse, who stepped up to take over the family estate when some of her relatives threatened to sell it. It may not have been the easiest vintage to produce, but the results are effortless. Peppery spice from high-quality new oak integrates beautifully with the fruit and florals here, making for a complex nose. There is plenty of richness and juicy forest fruit on the mid-palate and a good resolution of tannins building structure, yet remaining elegant. At 13.5%, the wine is beautifully smooth building to a long and mouthwatering finish, with a fresh, chalky, mineral bite, partly thanks to the higher proportion of Cabernet Franc. The wine will see a little bit less new oak than normal, around 58%, with a slightly shorter élevage (12-14 months) forecast. Blend: 73% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Franc
