Garnet-colored, showing signs of a good evolution in bottle. Strong leather, white tobacco and cassis on the nose. In the mouth this wine has classic Medoc characteristics: tight tannins and excellent length. A vintage to hold on to
“Beautiful deep red with purple-blue tints. Pleasant nose marrying floral and fruity notes, a touch of liquorice and blackcurrant, focused after swirling. On the palate, a seductive, full, aromatic yet also quite characterful wine.” – Gilbert & Gaillard
53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot
Attractive dark red hue with a highly aromatic nose typical of Margaux. In the mouth, a tight, smooth attack with a very fine balance of delicateness and soft, rounded tannins
“Baron de Brane – Blackberry, oak and coca scents open to an easy to drink, fresh, medium-bodied Margaux wine”. – The Wine Cellar Insider
65.4% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 0.6 Carmenère
Superb nose very expressive and bursting with fruits. Intense wild strawberries and licorice nose, with a touch of menthol and caramel. Beautiful finesse and aromatic richness. Straightforward in mouth, with firm yet elegant tannins. Long and dense backbone with a very nice volume and a lot of freshness. Concentrated aromatic aftertaste with floral and chocolaty notes. Long and powerful finish, remarkable tannic structure. A sexy and powerful wine!
“Strong ruby garnet, violet reflections, wider water rim, fine, inviting nuances of heart cherries, a hint of vanilla, delicate of mandarin zest. Juicy, elegant, feminine, red berry style, integrated tannins, fresh structure, subtle sweetness in the finish, accessible and versatile.” – Falstaff magazine
