Taste like: Jancis Robinson, says “Bright crimson. Fresh, meaty, savoury nose. Much less obviously sweet than Le Pin from the same family – though there is a certain freshness and bloodiness. Reminds me a little of Haut-Brion in its fresh frank expression. Very firm. Very precise – no flatterer. Quite cool. Good attack.”
