Structured and also rich, this wine is full of dark berry fruits as well as tannins. It's dense with ripe Merlot and delicately perfumed by the Cabernet Franc, offering a delicious, juicy black-fruit aftertaste. The vineyard is on the flat plain of Saint-Émilion that leads to the river Dordogne. Drink from 2017.
