(55% cabernet sauvignon and 45% merlot): Good medium ruby. Enticing aromas of raspberry, dark chocolate and sweet oak. Rich, silky and full but not at all heavy; round, fresh and nicely balanced. Very well delineated flavors of black and red fruits offer impressive lift. Finishes with substantial but very fine tannins that reach the front teeth. A moderate 13.1% alcohol, vs. 13.3% for the 2003.

Harvest date 19 Sep-6 Oct; yield 59 hl/ha; vineyard area 68.77 haVery dark crimson - much bluer than the 2006 for example. Fresh yet intense. Lots of appetising notes here. Not at all heavy. Racy. Almost light and transparent! Very mineral. Very much of the terroir. Real succulence. Not heavy handed at all - still an undertow of cassis. Excellent balance.

Deep purple. Thick legs, some cellulite. Manure at first (seriously, not grass not earth, but dried earthy manure). Some dark fruit in the background. Thankfully dark fruit and earthy to the taste. no sign of manure. Fairly heavy but very well balanced. Score based on evolution with air, not love for manure.
