From one of the properties owned by André Lurton in Pessac-Léognan, this is a well-structured, wood-aged wine. Solid tannins and spice accompany coffee and bitter chocolate flavors. These are subsiding as the wine matures, leaving black currant fruits and a series of firm tannins that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2017.
