(from two separate parcels, one to the left of the Château and another situated to the right by the Méo-Camuzet vines). Discreet wisps of wood surround the earthy, plum, dark currant, spice and sauvage scents. The medium-bodied flavors are quite muscular though the supporting tannic spine is finer than usual on the lingering, firm and youthfully austere finish that exhibits a touch of dryness. This classically styled effort may very well round out but that is not guaranteed. 92?/2026+
