The smoke, almond, dark-berry and plum character is impressive to this young Duhart. Full body, round and silky tannins and beautiful fruit and spice undertones. Plenty of coffee and cedar flavors at the end. A pretty Duhart. Needs four or five years bottle age.

73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot

A recurring phenomenon in recent years, the beginning of the winter was mild and dry, and it was only at the end of January that beneficial colder temperatures arrived, accompanied by rain. Bud break began in early April as usual, and the vines then grew quickly, as they had ample reserves of water and the weather was mild. In June, flowering was early and uniform, which is always a promising sign.
The influence of the Atlantic ocean and the Gironde estuary helped to reduce the effect of a somewhat hot summer with high temperatures. Water stress was high, but rain in August brought the freshness required for the grapes to change colour and then to ripen perfectly. Conditions were ideal during the harvests, enabling us to obtain optimal ripeness for each plot.

TASTING NOTES (at bottling)
The wine has a beautiful dark garnet colour.
The nose is deep, with good harmony between the young woodiness characteristic of our TDD barrels and the wine?s fresh fruit. Beautiful notes of liquorice.
On the palate, it develops quickly and is immediately very present. Consistent and balanced, it continues with tremendous length.
Pleasant finish with notes of cherries.
Excellent potential to improve with age.
