St-Estèphe is the most northerly and largest of the Haut-Médoc communes. St-Estèphe is regarded for producing sturdy and long-lived wines.
This wine has a soft, fleshy and ample feel, combining soft bramble and ripe plum flavours with smooth tannins. Subtle cedar and leaf aromas complete the picture.
Ripe and straightforward, this is a claret with great all-round appeal. A backbone of blackberry fruit is supported by fine-grained tannins and subtle notes of sweet spice and toasted oak.
"a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of boysenberries, black currants, cherries, pain grille, roasted herbs, and licorice." 92 points. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
