    Includes 5.5% petit verdot, matured for 18 months in French oak (60% new). Counterintuitively, the wine is every bit as approachable now as its lower-priced siblings. The colour is superb, deep but brilliant, the bouquet laden with ripe cassis fruit, the palate threaded with streams of black fruits, firm tannins and high quality oak. Already a great wine, and it has only just begun its journey.
