Perfumed and gorgeous! So characterful for Bordeaux. Violets and woodspice jump from the glass. Mouth-watering blackberry and blackcurrant on the palate. Amazing price.

Winner of a Gold Medal at the Challenge International du Vin 2012. If you want to invest in a great wine for dinner then this, with its 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet, should be top of mind. Black cherry notes open the bidding, followed by sandalwood and hickory notes. A pleasant, fruit-forward Bordeaux with a rock-solid flavour portfolio and the structure to match. Impeccably styled and still youthful, this will drink well over the next 5-6 years. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, April 2013
