Close to the Dordogne river, this estate has produced a rich, dense wine. Dark plum fruit flavors give it great richness, supported by a solid background of firm tannins. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this structured and firm wine is still young. Solid tannins are cut by the black currant fruit and fresh acidity. The wine, though drinkable, needs to age for a few more months, so drink from 2016.
