This wine comes from a privileged 2.5-acre vineyard perched on the edge of the city of Saint-Emilion next to cru classé Clos Fourtet. It is beautifully perfumed, rich, opulent almost, but still with a strong sense of structure and dark, dry fruits. The texture is dense, packed with dusty tannins and black currant jelly flavors. It should age well, over at least 10 years.
