Medium to deep ruby-red colour starting to display a certain maturity towards the rim. Attractive nose here, more modern style here with that sweet ripe fruit. Quite a mix of red and dark berries. With fine oak, gently roasted. Nice palate, very juicy and attractive. With a soft extraction. Medium weight. Very nice, juicy fruit. Made in more, I would say subtle, really drinkable style. With hints of plum, raspberry, sweet spices. Really good freshness. Yeah, quite a long finish actually. Keeps lingering. So I would say an attractive and modern style Bordeaux, for a rather early drinking. It is pretty delicious right now in its straight forward, fruity and subtle style. Enjoy.

Forward, slightly flashy style, with lots of toasted spice, anise, blueberry and plum aromas backed by good density on the palate. Lightly firm plum skin edge on the finish, but good material here.—J.M.
