This wine comes from an historic 700-acre estate in the southern Médoc that's home to vines, forests and stallions. The wine is ripe and full of black currants from its majority of Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich and packed with generous fruit, the wine shows the progress the property has made in recent years. It still holds plenty of tannins, so age further and drink from 2023.
