Paulin and Isabelle Calvet took over this property in 1993, and consistently make one of Bordeaux`s greatest value, classically styled reds. In 2022, the blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, with 5% Petit Verdot, the final Grand Vin bottling representing 70% of the property`s production (the rest being destined for the estate’s Second wine). Currently ageing in 40% new barrels, colour is rich and deep, having very attractive cassis and violet aromas – fresh and open. Palate is intensely structured, with beguiling, firmly concentrated fruitiness and suave texture. There is more power here than in recent vintages, tannins being fine, length being long and satisfying (for drinking 2030-2042+).
