Consistently one of the best of the cru bourgeois wines, this blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from the Ribeiro-Pelon family is again a big-time winner. Loads of dark fruits, plum, fig, cedar wood and hints of underbrush and forest floor make for a delicious, medium to full-bodied, velvety textured and opulent wine. Drink over the next 5-8 years.

50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc. Not expensive… Quite savoury and meaty and solid. Good solid yeoman stuff.
