This blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot comes from a small parcel of vineyards owned by the Borie family, which also has two Pauillac-classed growths. This wine is neat and finely formed with crisp fruit and attractive acidity. The tannins give support rather than domination. Drink from 2020.
