"There is body here, and edges to the tannins where you can touch the austerity of limestone, which is normally hidden in Monbousquet. But there is still a slightly bitter finish and such density that it remains a little hard to navigate. Should be softened up and ready to open in four or five years - but I suggest looking at Clos Lunelles in the Perse stable. 50% new oak. A yield of 30hl/ha. 3.75pH. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038"

This is linear and creamy with lovely, fine tannins and dark-berry, violet, stone and licorice character. Medium-to full-bodied, racy and fresh. Charming. Freshness at the end.
