This wine is always immense and the latest release, from a six-acre parcel surrounding Lagrézette's 17th century dovecote, is no exception. There is a sense of pent-up power here although it is not without its stylish elegance. Because it still so young, the black fruits stand out along with the concentrated tannins. It explodes in the mouth; dark and brooding. Drink this wine from 2022.
