Tasting note

It is a vintage of Cabernet franc and Merlot because the Cabernet Sauvignon did not perform as well. With climate influence together, the results are a wine with tight and dense mouthfeel with packed dark berry fruits (Alexandre Thienpont commented it shares similarity to their 2010 and 2016, which I have not tasted). Tannins are perfectly ripe and polished, showing a somewhat velvety structure of a thick dark chocolate bar. Lots of nuances of aromas but the final structure is not yet clear due to the dominating tannins. Very long finish.

Drinking window suggestion : 2040-2050+
