Yields were much higher for the Merlots than for the Cabernets. The Merlot wines are structured, fruity, deeply-coloured and concentrated. The Cabernets display richness and class, with the unctuosity that characterises the best vintages. The outstanding weather in 2015 resulted in rich, fruity wines with great balance and excellent structure. Made from very ripe fruit, they have a perfect harmony and a remarkable underlying softness. Powerful Cabernets dominate the blend. Rich, fleshy and dense, they harmonise with the well-structured Merlots. The Petits Verdots are dark and spicy, and bring a touch of complexity to the wine.
