This has the Mdoc Merlot thing that I like. It's a little stalky, but carries it off because of a violet, floral edge. Firm, dark fruits lead into chewy, slightly drying tannins on the finish. 69% Merlot, 19% Petit Verdot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. 44ha in Lamarque.

This wine is dry and firm. There is an indication of black fruit which needs to develop further. Because the wine has weight, it will eventually become rich and concentrated, worthy of medium-term aging.
