From the Moueix family of Pétrus, this is a beauty that shows off all that’s good in Right Bank Merlot-dominated wines. Luscious and crammed with succulent plummy fruit, there’s so much full-bodied warmth here that you can’t stop drinking it once you start. A model of food-friendly, elegant wine.
Just hinting at maturity, this rich and stylish wine features finely balanced tannins, a juicy blackberry flavor and fruity ripeness. Using fruit sourced from the small appellation of Canon-Fronsac, on the hill close to Saint-Émilion, this wine is ready to drink and is full of flavor, with concentration on the finish.
It’s appropriate that this wine is served at the Crazy Horse saloon in Paris. Made from a selection of old vines, La Horse is in the modern, polished idiom, a super-ripe wine, very concentrated, packed with blackberry jelly and bitter chocolate flavors. Give it 3–4 years, but its considerable power and intensity is already there.
A full, structured wine, showing attractive damson and blackberry flavors along with a strong element of wood aging. The wine is rich, its juicy Merlot character joined with final acidity.
