March 2017: An explosion of red fruit at perfect maturity. A garnet red color with real intensity and depth. A refined, expressive nose, offering strawberry, cherry and blackberry aromas. The attack is round, almost sweet, with supple, fine tannins. Superb length in the mouth and great purity with retro-olfaction.
05 + 10 = 15. In 2015, nature treated us with a cross between 2 other exceptional vintages. Climatic conditions were ideal throughout the entire cycle in the vineyard, but particularly favorable in the Margaux appellation during the ripening period. Picking conditions were thus excellent, allowing us to harvest each of the varietals in every plot at their optimal ripeness. The wines have great aromatic richness and splendid tannic structure. They have everything necessary to allow them to age well for many years to come.
