Description

This is still a great vintage, charming and soft. The style is defined by a finesse which express its terroir. On the nose are aromas of cooked fruit, on the palate its all etherial tannins, softness and harmony. This is a wine for those who love subtle Medocs and it jasn't lost anything with time. - Winemaker Notes
