This First Growth always requires bottle-age to soften, bloom and show its full complexities, and the 2019 will be no exception. The vines now average 60 years of age. The limestone-dominated section of the plot suffered frost damage, so grapes from the marlstone-rich part make up most of the cuvée – bringing extra richness. In colour, green-gold, with very fragrant nose. Palate is richly built, with impressive length and freshness (for drinking 2022-2026+).
