This fine, rich, fruity wine is from a chateau controlled by the Lurton family. It is solid, concentrated and dense, packed with blackberry flavor. Deliciously juicy now, it has the tannins and acidity that suggest it is capable of aging for many years.
Wood and solid fruit give the character of this wine. It has a dense, tannic and dusty fruit texture. Fruit flavors show a juicy black cherry character, underlined with licorice and tight acidity.
An easy, attractive wine that shows some of the very ripe, small berry flavors of 2003. Dense but sweet tannins balance the black fruits and the solid structure which lies underneath this rich wine. One of the three Lurton properties owned by Marie-Laure Lurton.
