This second wine from Alain Dominique Perrin's Lagrézette team comes from a separate vineyard to the grand vin. It is structured, ripe and fruity. The tannins are soft well integrated into the black fruits. The wine is still at the bright fruit stage and will age, so drink now for its fruit, but better to wait until 2018.
