The Merlots were runaway success here in 1998: very fat and full, supercharged in fruit. The Cabernets were less homogeneous but our best plots of land gave us very rich and promising wines. Blend: Cabernet-Sauvignon: 62%, Merlot: 30%, Cabernet franc: 3%, Petit Verdot: 8%, Tasting notes: Deep purple colour. Complex on the nose, delivering aromas of leather, black fruit, liquorice. Silky and fresh on the palate, with notes of brown tobacco, dark chocolate, grounds of coffee, blackberry, blackcurrant, and slight leather. The tannins are fine, elegant and melted.
