Pessac-Léognan

The rich fruit on the nose is overlaid with bonfire smoke leafy fragrant the palate rich fleshy supple gamey with depth of flavour. Black fruits cassis and black cherry are backed by slightly fresher bramble but at the back chocolate and liquorice enrich. Fleshy on the finish yet there is an underlying savoury elegance.
