One of the finest wines to come out of Cahors, this is so stylish. Of course, it has power, intense fruit and acidity. At the same time, balanced richness allied to solid tannins and ripe black fruits single it out. It needs considerable aging to soften the tannins that are still so exuberant. Drink from 2018.
