8th bottle from a case bought en primeur. Drinking a bottle a year whilst waiting for the left bank wines to be fully ready to drink. Big nose of plums, blackcurrant and cedar with some sous bois in the background. Quite full bodied. The cepage is 80% merlot but the character has more cabernet blackcurrant than its 10% weight. Smooth on the palate with loads of soft tannins that still have some maturing to go. Still plenty of life and some improvement ahead. Very enjoyable.
