1st Grand Cru Classé in 1855.

- +

The year 2010 is dry with a dry summer.

This lack of water causes a phenomenon of dehydration by concentrating the constituent elements of the grape berry and to obtain quantitative values never reached, in particular on the richness in sugar.

It is a blend of Merlot Noir: 23%, Cabernet Sauvignon: 57% and Cabernet Franc: 20%.

The robe is close to a superb ruby red, with a purplish sheen.

The nose reveals itself with agitation. The aromas follow one another in a superb fade, starting with a woody side, then come the red fruits and then the terroir by flavors of cocoa powder, roasting and Havana.

In the mouth, the sweetness of the beginning gives way to the appearance of the tannic structure. Despite a palpable density, the tannins are of a great endless finish.

It is a wine for ageing, and we take care to leave the bottles lying down in the cellar, away from light and noise, with a hygrometric degree of around 70%.

It is a wine that is close to its peak today but whose asymptote may continue to evolve until the 2040s. Successive tastings should be done in order to measure the evolution of the wine.
