Bold, deep and concentrated on the nose. Ripe, fresh and so succulent with mouthwatering acidity and fleshy texture. Still so youthful, I love the upfront nature of the elements - it's characterful and has real personality with the bright strawberry and blackcurrant fruit underpinned by high acidity and offset by plush tannins. After a few seconds the primary fruit subsides leaving a host of menthol and wood spiced elements that provide the backbone - still quite apparent at the moment but they give a sense of the structure and provide nuance and layers of flavour. A mighty wine that could be kept a few more years before opening. Grapes come from clay-limestone hilltop vineyards of Grézillac in the Entre-deux-Mers. From the Andre Lurton stable, now overseen by Jacques Lurton, also of Château Couhins Lurton, La Louvière, Rochemorin, Cruzeau and Barbe Blanche. A 60/40 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 12 months in 20% new oak barrels.
