Great purity on the nose with the classic notes of cedar, pencil shavings, cassis, tobacco and graphite associated with the great wines of the left bank in Bordeaux. Polished firm tannins with fresh acid and generous amount of vanilla well supported by the concentration of fruit. Complex with a long finish. While the wine is without a doubt showing its high quality, it will express greater complexity in 10 to 15 years from now. A great example of the combination of finesse and power one finds in Saint-Julien in great vintages.
