"Deep garnet-colored, the 2010 First Growth opens to a gorgeous nose of ripe blackcurrant and preserved plums with hints of fragrant earth, underbrush, cigar box, sandalwood and dried Mediterranean herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the elegant palate has great concentration, fine tannins and length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Wine Makers Notes
An intense nose of pure cassis, liquorice and subtle seaweed notes with smoky French oak. Densely layered blackcurrant, mint and leather on the palate combine with the elegant oak frame for a long and fine mouth-feel with fine suede-like tannins.
