Crazy aromas of saffron, volcanic salt, hot stone, mushrooms, and wet earth. Then blueberry and blackberry undertones. Full body, super compressed and refined tannins. Powerful. Seamless and endless. 76% merlot and the rest cabernet franc.
96-97 points, James Suckling (Mar 2016)
Big, bold and juicy, this is a step up from previous vintages of this wine, owned by Haut-Brion. It has ripe tannins and concentration with spice and broad acidity. Black fruits go with the red fruit flavors to give a rich, generous wine.
