A broad and confident vintage boasting ripe black fruit, red cherry and toast to mingled with cedar, truffle and leather. The palate is fleshy and rich with generous fruit and soft developed tannins. This is beautiful claret built in a style that is slightly more restrained compared with the super-juicy modern high-alcohol clarets of today.

A fully loaded palate of cassis, charred vanilla, cherry stone, and cedar follow a pretty nose of mineral-edged black fruit. These two fantastic wines come beautifully presented in a wooden branded Waddesdon box.
