The colour of this wine is still a deep crimson red with hints of garnet. The blend, with a high proportion of Cabernet Franc, offers ripe, sweet spicy aromas, with a note of white pepper, well supported by the presence of sweet elderberries and blackberries. In the mouth, this is an elegant Margaux with a fine tannic structure and very good length.
