12 to 28 September
Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Merlot 7%, Cabernet Franc 3%
The colour is intense, a dark red with brilliant highlights.
The supremely elegant nose displays red fruit aromas with touches of spice.
On the palate, a smooth, creamy attack yields powerful, velvet tannins. The roundness is remarkable, giving the wine very attractive length.
The finish reveals vanilla and chocolate aromas, with pleasant floral notes.
A very fine, classic Mouton and a great success in a tricky vintage.
