NEW VINTAGE OF THIS BEST SELLER  50% MERLOT, 20% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 30% MALBEC. The beginning of Malbec's entry into Bordeaux Wines in a larger percentage of the blend. This is a very old property -- XVth Century once owned by the Archbishop of Bordeaux. It changed hands in 2009. The new owners made a splash with their 2010 Vintage, using their Malbec vines from the old vineyards which are still present in Bordeaux. From a dense purple to purplish reflection. The 2015 is characterized mainly by its bouquet of ripe black fruits. Rather sharp from the attack, but balanced and well structured, the palate shows in the finale as little nervous tannins that require about two years of patience to drink at its best. Decanting this wine for an hour or so will smooth it out beautifully.
