- 88 Decanter
Extremely vibrant violet in colour, this is an even blend of Cabernet and Merlot, aged in 30% new oak barrels. There was no frost at this property, and the overall feeling is of vibrant but fairly softly-spoken red fruits, violet-edged with raspberry notes and gentle smoke. It's a bit underpowered through the mid-palate, lacking some intensity, so it's one to enjoy in the medium term, to relish the floral perfume of a Margaux without expecting anything too powerful or persistent.
