Very much a mixed bag from Pessac-Léognan and Graves, with no rhyme or reason to what worked and what didn't. The majority of it is pretty average stuff, with the two bogeymen of 2013, lightness and unbalanced tannin, proving the major drawback in many cases.
The tasting notes are listed in alphabetical order.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot.
Lovely fruit! So instantly Bordelais – dark blackcurrant, cherry and cedar. Almost inevitably, the palate weight doesn't match the purity of the fruit, with a distinctly light touch. Well-sculpted tannins though, and very enjoyable in a lighter style. (RH)
