François Nony was amazed by the quality of fruit at harvest time. The berries were rich and ripe, with structured Cabernet Sauvignon, voluptuous Merlot and particularly harmonious Petit Verdot. A vibrant violet bouquet, intense and powerful, the palate oozes ripe black berry fruits with hints of sweet tobacco, a touch of pencil lead and finely integrated oak. The tannins are polished and the finish highly focused. A beautiful wine showing great poise and balance.
