From the southern part of the Haut-Médoc, this Tessandier family wine is a richly structured blend with Cabernet Sauvignon dominant. It has a dry, firm and densely tannic structure along with ripe and potentially generous blackberry fruit. The combination will allow this dark, firm wine to age well. Drink from 2024.
