"A touch of unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco, black currants and graphite characteristics are followed by a soft, ripe, dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied, well-made wine displaying nicely integrated oak, acidity and tannin. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."

"Tasted twice with consistent notes, the Grand Vin is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot picked from 1 to 16 October at 45hl/ha. If offers plenty of ripe black plum and mulberry fruit on the nose that evolves a marine-like influence. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft entry that belies that tannins that become more evident towards the finish. There is good weight here, a real class act and the finish is one of the finest that I have encountered on the Grand Vin at this primal stage. Certainly one to look out for once released. Tasted April 2013."
