(Bordeaux Superieur) Manual harvest and 12-18 mos in French oak make for quality differences in this wine. A top Bordeaux Superieur classification. Rich red berry fruitiness and a good tannic structure. I like the purity of the fruit flavors and the character built in with lots of spicy notes of chocolate and roasted coffee and anise seed. Small production and a favorite. Try with lamb chops and mint sauce.
