5th Classified Growth in 1855

- +

Born under the best auspices of a great year, very sunny, with alternating rain between veraison and harvest.

The bloom was very fine, transparent, with an exceptional quality of flesh.

The color is garnet with some purple reflections.

In the first attack, the bouquet expresses aromas of small black fruits such as blackberry and blackcurrant followed by fine touches of acacia honey and cedar wood.

The balance in the mouth is very tense with a pleasant acidity and tannins of great finesse, with an elegant, complex finish, and a very beautiful persistence conducive to prolonged aging.

Perfect for long-term aging in the cellar, away from light and noise with an optimum degree of 70% to reach its peak in the years 2024/2026 with a continuity of around ten years.
