Sweet, restrained nose; generous, middleweight wine, fresh and tannic, a fine, long-term constitution; rich, ample, powerful, tannic; masses of flavor within the firm tannin texture; long in ripe fruit, powerful in flavor, complex and complete, with excellent length. An aromatic and a powerful expression of St-Emilion, needing at least 8–10 years. 2018–35.

Great color; intense and noble violet-like nose; perfect ripeness, great length; perhaps more Pomerol in character than St-Emilion! Refined winemaking, seductive and complex—lovely.
The same soft and mellow body as Virginie, but much longer and intense. Great hedonistic style, with a perfect balance and a long depth.
