Extraordinary value for a Grand Cru Classé des Graves. Exceptionally full-bodied, this wine has the tannic structure and acidity to cellar for at least a decade. After being decanted for six hours, this wine began to offer up a bouquet of lilac and crushed stone with a burst of charred fresh fruit. This is an intense experience of burnt earth, unsweetened chocolate, and fresh berries on the palate. This wine shows, and it shows its pedigree.
