Tasting Notes

Surprisingly evolved and complex already, this wine is even more powerful than the 2010. Reaching 14.5% natural alcohol, the vines were cropped at an astonishingly low 20 hectoliters per hectare. A final blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine is dense and rich, with a dark purple color, loads of creosote, camphor, black raspberry and blueberry fruit, as well as hints of sweet cherry and toasty oak. Lush, pure, full-bodied and intense, this is a stunning sleeper of the vintage, much like the 2010. It is capable of lasting at least a decade.
