Marc Quertinier,
oenologist

Dark ruby young color.
Full, fruity nose, ripe fruit, mineral, fleshy. Typed Médoc. Lots of sparkle.
On the palate, fat, full, fine sweetness. Very nice tannins. Fruity return.
A great racy vintage.
Harmonises with: foie gras and its jelly, rack of lamb, prime rib with wine merchant sauce, sukiyaki (Japanese fondue)…
