Ripe blackberry bouquet emerging; very well-balanced combination of ripe fruit and subtle oak, fresh, quite concentrated medium-full wine, finely if firmly tannic; rich middleweight, fine dry flavor; elegant, precise, aromatic, complex; long across the palate with a nice sweet core of fruit, a gentle gravel background, and fine length. Texture firm still; needs a bit of time. 2015–30+.

Good color, precise and focused nose, excellent body for the vintage; class, balance, noble finish; classical and made for aging. Excellent for the vintage.
Deep and shining color; superb notes of blueberries. Perfect balance, ripe flesh and tannins, length and plenitude. A model of classic, pure and deep Bordeaux.
