The first vintage without the watchful eye of Madam Gasqueton looks to be a fitting example from this historic château. Leafy hedgerow notes abound, with blackcurrant and Christmas cake aromas. There is an energy and freshness here that is reflected in the more floral red fruits coming through and the palate is a little more complex and firmer than most – you can tell you are in St Estèphe. Blackcurrant fruit with a menthol edge, rounded tannins and fine acidity that cuts through on the lengthy finish complete the picture. This is very serious wine.
