Variety: Bordeaux-style Red Blend
Appellation: Moulis-en-Médoc, Bordeaux, France

The best components of the vintage go into this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and what a vintage 2015 was. This is a ripe, full-bodied style with supple mulberry fruit flavours complemented by oak and underlying acidity. 93pts Tim Atkin, MW
