Deep red-ruby. Ripe aromas of black raspberry and mocha, plus vanilla and chocolate oak notes. Rich and fine-grained, with excellent chalky energy giving lift to the flavors of spicy red fruits, minerals and sexy oak. Has the depth of fruit to support its big, oak-driven tannins. This intensely flavored wine became sweeter and more exotic with 24 hours in the recorked bottle.
(an 85/15 blend of merlot and cabernet franc; 3.7 pH; 14.7 % alcohol) Deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe red cherry, sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Fresh and clean in the mouth, with flavors similar to the aromas. The long finish features supple mounting tannins. This parcel of vines, situated next to Clos Fourtet, was originally purchased from Chateau Canon.
