The Washington Post NA FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE: 2 1/2 STARS
Deep and dark colored, this savory merlot, with some cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc rounding out the blend, strikes a modernist note: It emphasizes fruit over the traditional minerality. It’s beautifully balanced, with an energy that sustains it over several hours or days, so consider decanting. And it’s produced by a female winemaker, which is not too common in Bordeaux. ABV: 14.5 percent.
