Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon account for 40% of the 14 ha of vineyard here and this is in part the reason for the surprisingly dense and powerful structure of the wine. The tannin can be very firm in the wine’s youth and it really needs a decade to begin to show its true class, when it becomes very refined and harmonious. Excellent from 1998 on.
