The Garcin family has done a fabulous job in Bordeaux with their other estates, such as Barde-Haut and Clos L’Eglise in Pomerol, as well as with the nearby luxury wine from Pessac Léognan – Branon. They produce this wine from gravelly and sandy soils, of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Attractive, soft cassis and tobacco-leaf notes mixed with licorice and spice are present in this dense ruby/plum wine. It is medium-bodied with soft tannin and a relatively smooth, velvety texture, finish and opulence, giving this wine an up-front appeal, although it should age nicely for 12-15 years.

This is a tough wine, but one with enough weight and fruit about it. It is dense and packed with potential of good things. Big fruits, big tannins and a dark structure all promise good aging with a serious, firm aftertaste. Drink from 2020.

A red with chocolate, tobacco and berry character, following through to a medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.
