A severe selection has taken place here, so that only 60% of the total production has gone into the Grand Vin. This has a high proportion (65%) of the very successful Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in it, the balance being Merlots. It is ageing 38% in new barrels, 42% and 20% in barrels which have held, respectively, one and two previous vintages. The result is a very beautiful wine, medium-deep in colour, with openly fresh, perfumed aromas. Palate has lovely fruitiness, fine concentration, balanced tannins and clear freshness – superb value (for drinking 2020-2028+).
