Medium/full-bodied, regal and just about ready to go, give it a few years in the cellar to release all of its black currant, tobacco leaf, cedar, forest leaf peppery herb character to shine through. There is ample depth of flavor, body and loads of ripe, sweet, fresh currants to make this interesting and fun to drink while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. Drink from 2023-2036.

This is definitely a mini version of the Grand Vin. With 2018, you find a forward blast of sweet, ripe, juicy currants, freshness, herbs and tobacco leaf on the nose and on the silky palate. Already easy and enjoyable to drink, the sweetness of the fruits in the elegantly textured finish makes you want to take sip after sip. This is an outstanding second wine that bears tasting.

Blending 61% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc produced a wine packed with fresh crème de cassis, earth, cedar and plum. Round, polished and with the ability to age for a bit, although it's best enjoyed on the young side for its early charms. This is a strong second wine.
