flagBordeaux / France

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot. 18 months in 95% new oak. 13% abv. Something has moved quality up yet another gear here this – it could be to do with the new press that has given extra finesse to the press wine component but this seems to be a chateau that is one an endless upward curve. The 2012 is very pure on the nose with lifted floral notes. Ripe yet restrained on the palate with seamlessly silky texture and very fine tannins. It’s not sheer volume that impresses here so much as precision and definition. Standout on the left bank for us and very good indeed. FINE+RARE
