(2022) From an estate on the Right Bank that no longer exists, its vineyards being absorbed into Château Dauphin, this is 68% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot and spent 18 months in barrel. It comes from a period when the estate was owned by Christian Moueix. Plummy and spicy on the nose, this still feels ripe and rich, a touch of fruitcake character. In the mouth a really nice wine, those spices, mellow and smooth oak and that deep plum and black fruit are edged by sweet and solid tannins and pert acids. Surprisingly good in some ways.
