Beautiful dark red violet colour. Very appealing nose with notes of red fruit dominated by cherry. There are also notes of tobacco, which is quite unusual at this stage of the ageing process. On the palate, the wine quickly opens up, which is often the case for Les Carruades due to its higher proportion of Merlot. It rapidly develops a full bodied character, with exceptional balance. The complementarity between the four grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is perfect, offering a very pleasant, well structured mid-palate. The finish brings refined, slightly salty, mineral notes.
