Tasting notes

By renowned oenologists Michel ROLLAND and Stéphane TOUTOUNDJI (GAULT & MILLAU)

  • 2016 - EXCELLENT WINES
    Complex and rich bouquet. The attack is soft and then increases in power. The mouth is dense resulting in a long, rich finish.
  • 2015 - AN EXCEPTIONAL YEAR
    Opulent. The attack is supple and increases in strength. The mouth is dense and voluptuous, resulting in a gourmet, tannic and long finish. A wine with excellent ageing capacity with a lot of charm.
  • 2014 - A GOOD VINTAGE RICH AND SMOOTH
    On the palate, very ripe tannins and wood give the wine a perfect fusion. The finish, delicately woody, reinforces the length of this refined and elegant wine.
  • 2013 - SEDUCED BY ITS BALANCE. ADORABLE WINES
    Full and smooth on the palate, elegant and silky tannins. Beautiful length accompanied by delicate woody notes.
  • 2012 - A YEAR OF MERLOT, PLEASURE IN THE RAW STATE
    Elegant palate, with melted tannins. Long finish with very nice fruitiness.
