85% Merlot with 15% Cabernet Franc. Rich almost plummy nose. Plump and yet not sweet, very richly full of black fruit flavour. Fleshy and goes on well. Second sample away from Chateau was oxidised on nose, but all the body and richness still there. This is the first vintage which is officially 'organic wine', a new and long fought-for designation which goes a little further than 'wine made from organically-grown grapes'. Rating: 90 L&S (Apr 2013)
