Bordeaux 2011: Tales of Tannins and Terroir (May 2012)

Medium-deep ruby. Captivating nose combines red fruits, mocha and aromatic herbs. Light and lively on the palate, with good precision to the red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with lovely length and persistent mineral tang. This refined, nicely balanced midweight will be an extremely impressive debut for this new property, which is owned by Anthony Barton of Langoa and Leoville fame. It’s uncanny the way this wine resembles its two more famous siblings.
