Situated in the commune of Martillac, this 20-hectare property was purchased by Eric Perrin in 1987. It subsequently underwent a major rejuvenation: the results of the family’s vineyard and winemaking expertise shine clearly in this 2018 wine. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon with 40% Merlot, aged for 12 months in oak barrels (20% new), this is textbook Pessac, having wonderfully lifted, floral, black fruit aromas. Palate is intense, finely woven and luscious, with admirable bounce carrying to a long-lingering finish. Still in its youth, but starting to show off its charm, we recommend drinking this from now-2028+.
