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)…
