The father and daughter team of François-Xavier and Emeline Borie has produced one of the great wines of the 2016 vintage. 79% of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, with 21% Merlot, the wine currently ageing in 75% new oak barrels. The vines grow in a single block, around the Château, atop an impressive gravel mound, with fine views.
The colour is a bright, deep purple, the aromas being concentrated, combining ripe black fruits and intense stony freshness. This is a magnificent wine of considerable depth, that is vibrant, lively and has tremendous energy. Rich, supple, with a fleshy middle and super texture, the structure is magnificent, the tannins super-fine. Powerful to finish, with outstanding length of flavour, this is a true classic (for drinking 2025–2045+).
