(2021) Unoaked, the blend is 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. Robust, dark ruby in colour, it's a big, plummy, creamy Merlot nose, the two Cabernets adding just a hint of green olive austerity somewhere in the background, but nothing much interrupts that Merlot fruit. The palate has plenty of fruit too, tannins dry but quite fine and plenty of cherry-skin and plum-skin tart acidity to balance. Enjoyable, quite big-scaled, everyday Bordeaux.
