About the colour, deep Ruby fairly sustained with garnet. First nose very intense with hints of fresh fruit which evolves to agitation to more ripe nuances of jam, pear, violet and prune lightly underscored by the vanilla. On the palate, the attack is supple and perception evolves into a clear structure but not explosive. The tannins are velvety on the palate and become firmer on the final remains very balanced with a fruity aromatic always perception. This Haut-Medoc wine is very balanced, more elegant than powerful.
