2eme Cru St Estephe 2017
A super second performing at first growth level.
" Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of incense, spice cake, star anise and plum preserves plus a perfumed hint of potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm yet wonderfully ripe, "sweet", fine-grained tannins at just 13% alcohol—something of a miracle in our modern times. The palate sports fantastic freshness and tons of energy emitted from the intensely perfumed black fruit layers, finishing on an especially long-lingering mineral note. Truly profound..” 97-100/100 Parker 95-97/100 Wine Enthusiast 94-96/100 Vinous
