Predominantly un-cloned king Cabernet Sauvignon which reigned supreme in the Medoc before 1914, with up to 18+ other grapes. This vintage is majestic, with immensely complex fruit & great body. A timeless vintage, drink it while young to relish its elegant fruitiness. Alternatively, put it down, knowing that in 7 or 15 years this wine will be truly superb. Serve in a large Balloon glass and open 3 to 4 hours before serving with cork or decant, with stopper.
2015 looks to match the outstanding 2010 vintage for excellent fruit precision and lift. It’s dark in colour yet not opaque at present. The intense blackcurrant notes blend perfectly with the slightly bitter herbal notes so characteristic of this wine. Notes of violet, blackberry, oak, with subtle touches of sweet spice. Balanced tannins complement the fruit seamlessly. Absolutely drinkable now, though records show this vintage will age very well. An excellent vintage.
