Even better in the bottle than in the barrel, the wine opens with smoke, spice-box, dried flowers and red pit fruit scents. Soft, medium-bodied and polished, with a core of sweet, ripe, silky fruits and freshness, the mix of red and darker red fruits in the finish is quite nice. This is fully ready to go. This little known estate is situated close to Smith Haut Lafitte. Drink from 2023-2035.
