Tasting Note

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Cabernet Franc 53%, Merlot 47%. 46 hl/ha. A lovely scent assails you immediately – violets and cassis. On the palate, there is real concentration in the centre, with an explosion of myriad fruits, a long finish and a sweet sign-off. The family are smiling here. 
Adam Bilbey: 47% Merlot, 53% Cabernet Franc. More depth and volume than the Pensees and the Cabernet Franc far more. Expanse to the nose with black cherry, plums, and blackcurrant leaf and a raspberry like menthol lift. There is also a saline edge that really offers an added dimension. Not as brooding as some Lafleur vintages but a great balance of fruit and the freshness of vintage. A darker core of fruit, with a tannic grip giving this a broad shouldered structure. The fresh, saline character of the vintage gives focus and direction. More age worthy than most I think.
