"Our Opinion: Simply put: it’s a beautiful wine. Beyond an exceptional vintage, the winemaking and refinement have been perfectly mastered. The wine is seductive and elegant, offering aromatic complexity and a “Medocan” character, even in its youth. It’s a wine that connoisseurs of young Bordeaux wines can appreciate with the indulgent and evolving sides of its youth. It also promises a beautiful future. This Cru Bourgeois is worthy of a good place in our wine cellars and on our tables. -- Tasting Scores: Eye - Wine of a ruby red, intense and deep; with glints of violet, showing its youth. The wine is barely marked by changes in gradient. It is shiny and dark. It also shows a good concentration of matter in the glass. Nose - The wine already stands out, with a beautiful aromatic complexity, notes of jammy black fruits: blackcurrants, blackberries, blueberries; then red fruits: raspberries and cherries; as well as smoky and roasty notes from the ageing process and finally spices, leather, Virginia tobacco, liquorice and peonies. With aeration, harmony between the aromas takes form with a seductive yet deep side. Freshness and maturity complete this exceptional vintage. Palate - On the palate, the first impression is velvety, smooth, and creamy. The aromas of black fruits are also found in this first impression. Then the wine takes on more “Medocan” properties, with a more virile and powerful character. The acidity is mentholated, the tannins are spicy and the finish is liqouricey. The Cabernet shows its strength in the finish. The ensemble is distinguished and voluptuous."
