Tasting Notes

On the nose, the wine is unusually open and giving, engaging the taster immediately. However, rather than rushing out of the glass, this is a more measured introduction, luring you in. Notes of small black cherries, violets, graphite, spice and a little pepper introduce themselves one by one, all in perfect detail. On the palate, there is a gear change, a subtle flexing of the muscles that reminds you that this is a serious, long lived wine. Power and grace combine effortlessly in a flowing, captivating ensemble. The minerality and freshness of the finish as well as the fine tannins show top grade winemaking but always in a natural, pure way, nothing forced or out of place. This wine is a true thoroughbred, clearly a masterpiece from the Guinaudeaus. armit, 20 points. Drink 2019-2030+

Reviews & Scores

The nose is fascinating, with blackberry, black licorice, mineral, flowers and more. Full-bodied, with an incredible texture of ripe tannins and cashmere yarn. A tightly wound ball. What length too. This wine made me feel like getting in the lotus position and meditating. It's almost more than wine. Vinous Nirvana. I think the Cabernet Franc really gave that extra level to it all. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 97-100 Points
