Cabernet Sauvigon (45 %), Merlot (50 %) and Petit Verdot (5%).
This magnificent Medoc reveals a splendid garnet colour tinged with brighter red. Notes of spice and subtly integrated oak mingle with great finesse. Although still a little timid, its solid but smooth tannins bear witness to its serious ageing potential. An accomplished wine which does honour to the Cru Bourgeois family of which it forms part.
Food matching: roast lamb, rib steak, ceps with parsley and garlic sauce, roast duck, strong cheeses
