This has the austerity of limestone in 2017 but it also has the well-worked, delicate flesh of these exemplary soils, and the careful inching forward of fruit, building up layer by layer, adding blueberry and raspberry fruits, and providing little bursts of minerality that keep your mouth watering long after the finish. Great stuff.

This structured wine brings together black fruits, rich tannins and good acidity. The mineral edge to the wine and powerful tannins promise great aging, spurred on by the ripe black fruits. Drink this classed growth Saint-Emilion from 2023.
