The Vintage 2005 : Harvest took place in the early days of September after a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring. Exceptional weather conditions for an exceptional vintage. Full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. Aging in oak cask during 15 months
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of red ripe berries mixed with toffees and a hint of leather on a delicate vanilla note. Generous, powerful, with a lot of breed and a marked terroir character. Well-shaped oak note. Solid tannins and good persistence.
