Extremely deep intense purple colour. Intense, slightly spicy, sandalwood-tinged, gently complex, warm, ripe, plum nose with some slight hints of garrigue. Dry, medium bodied, quite well structured, somewhat herbal, still youthful, intense, ripe plum flavours with some sandalwood notes on the lingering, high-acid finish. This tasty blend of 54% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot with 13% alcohol with lot number LBR2014 on the back label is a REPEAT of the 2014 (**/**+) that was released on January 5, 2019 at $24.95.Has appeared in Vintages before.

TASTING NOTE: This wine comes from an estate surrounding an impressive castle. The estate itself was created in the 6th century and is under the same ownership as neighboring Château Cissac. The wine is dark colored with intense flavor. It's sourced from old vines and carries Petit Verdot in the blend. It has the weight and the richness to age well. Drink from 2022. Editors' Choice.
