(2019) All five Bordeaux grapes, quite an equal split between the varieties. There’s a sophisticated sheen here, cedar and graphite, that touch of bloody game character and then plenty of plum and cherry fruit. It shares the Three's bittersweet bite of chicory and liquorice, but stays juicy, the tannins ripe and smooth and the acidity nicely cutting the weight and opulence of the fruit.
(2019) Bordeaux blend, matured in a mix of 225-, 500- and 3000-litre barrels. Highly aromatic, wth lots of pencil shavings and cedar, very pure black fruit, that little floral touch perhaps fro the Petit Verdot. On the palate, lots of cedar and smoky oak influence supporting the fruit. Dry tannins and a juicy cherry haracter to the acids, giving his plushness but with a firm finish with good tension. Merlot 44%, Cabernet Franc 32%, Cabernet Sauvignon 21%, Petit Verdot 3%.
