There are strong aromatics of dried flowers, pepper and blackcurrant. Well-structured, it has lively acidity and compact, fresh fruit with mature tannins and a smooth mouth-feel.
The palate offers notes of redcurrant, cherry and cassis, with a hint of pine. There’s lovely blue fruit on the mid-palate, with great texture that builds to a long finish, with smoky mocha notes and finely integrated tannins.
A compact and lovely Mouton, this is a rich wine with huge complexity that goes on and on.
