Made by the owners of Ausone. Robert Parker is quite a fan, and predicted this would produce early drinking pleasure, but I’ve found that it’s taken some years to open up a bit and show its class. It’s not a showy, or oaky wine. It’s quite poised, not a deep plummy left-bank wine but certainly merlot (perhaps also a reasonable amount of Cab Franc ?).
Best kept for a year or two before trying again.
