This is from a small five hectare Chateau owned by Luc Thienpont who also owns Le Pin, Vieux Château Certan and many other prestigious top estates. The Chateau is situated directly next to Chateau Margaux, on perfect soils.
This is absolutely delicious, and the few years of ageing add a complex, savoury note to it. A wonderful nose of ripe blackcurrants, a little leafiness and a touch of floral elegance. Medium bodied, but full in the mouth with that same blackcurrant fruit, lovely texture and attractive acidity.
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot & 10% Petit Verdot
