Dense mineral and ripe blackberry fruit; well-balanced middleweight, with a firm tannin and brisk acidity; elegant, close-knit, gravelly St Julien; a nice sweet core fruit and good aromatic length. Quite classy, but its sinews suggest a fairly long-term wine. 2017–30+.
Good color, smooth and refined, very elegant tannin, gentle personality; a slight lack of energy to be considered one of the best.

Excellent color, cedary classical nose, excellent body, and firmness of texture, dry but not aggressive tannins, excellent and severe selection, lots of potential.
