From the great 2010 vintage comes this fine Merlot-based wine featuring aromas of black cherry, coffee bean, black currant and sweet fresh herbs such as marjoram. Dry and fresh with fine tannins and also a lot of lively fruit. It is wonderfully round, but still showing a great deal of potential for short-term cellaring (2-4 years). Try with grilled veal chops and root vegetables. (VINTAGES panel, June 2012)
