Owned by the Cruse family, one of Bordeaux's major negociants, this estate was their original purchase in Bordeaux. With more than 60% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this wine is packed with black currants and tannins in equal measure. As the wine softens, it will broaden out to emphasize its richness and the warm fruit. Drink from 2023.
