This is a beautiful red blend from a largely white wine producing part of Bordeaux. Made from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, this is a classic claret from Pessac-Leognan brought to you in a format perfect for sharing: a Magnum!
This 2014 wine has a lovely bright, intense colour. The initial aromas are delicate, with the subtle smoky notes typical of Cabernet Sauvignon produced on gravelly soils. Aeration releases Morello cherry and blackcurrant notes. The attack is supple and seductive. The mid-palate is full, with tannins that are present and firm, but not too aggressive. This vintage is powerful and rich, with a nice long finish. It has potential for ageing around 15-30 years. Best decanted and served with grilled red meat.
