Tasting Notes: This Pauillac propery delivers awesome flavours in 2015. You can't help but enjoy this magnificntly ripe, sturdy, smoky claret. It has the cedary Pauillac characteristic. The tannines are pleasingly silky, and there is tremendous balance. Creamy blackberries and a precise shape,lead to a fruit-dominant finish.
