Denis Durantou believes 85% to 15% to be the most perfect blend for Merlot and Cabernet Franc and one that he employs in this wine. Deep glossy purple in colour with a black core. Perfumed cherry blossom notes precede a glorious array of dark skinned fruit on the nose with lovely toasted oak notes emerging. The palate is taut and mineral with a core of ripe, dark skinned fruit. With very fine tannins, this is long, juicy, fresh and laden with fruit. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Unusual, flinty nose, with notes of iron filings, spicy black fruit and new oak. The palate is dense and complete, with blueberry and a long tarry finish. Demonstrates the individuality of this great Grand Cru beautifully. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
A high calibre wine drinking beautifully now, this superb gift comes from a popular property with Majestic's fine wine customers. With a wonderfully classical label and stylish packaging this is certain to impress a wine connoisseur.
Exuberant on the nose, yet refined, this has notes of yellow plum and raisin, as well as a touch of caramel. On the palate, there are notes of grapefruit citrus and greengage fruit, as well as the more complex notes found in great botrytised wines: toffee, dried fruit and candied peel. An invigorating acidity lends balance and lift and this finishes beautifully long and mineral. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
