60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. Deep violet color. On the nose, notes of licorice, rose, plum and blackberry. The palate is harmonious and deep. Pair this wine with meat and aged cheese.
Under the same Borie family ownership as Château Ducru Beaucaillou in Saint-Julien, this wine shares something of the same rich approach. Velvet tannins still give a dry edge to the rich black fruits and perfumed acidity. The wine needs time and will be ready from 2023.
