This structured wine comes from an estate that has records going back to the 13th century. A blend of half-and-half Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is firm and tannic at this young stage. The juicy black currant fruit is beginning to develop, bringing with it plenty of crisp acidity. Drink this wine from 2023.
