A beautiful, brilliant color with golden hues show that Vignot evolves faster than Lassgue. The nose conjures up dark fruits with a hint of toast, notes of licorice and a mineral overtone. In the mouth, the wine is well balanced even thought it is dominated at the end by solid?firm tannins, which will round out with time. The lasting impression in the mouth is a pleasant surprise indicating that this wine is worth the wait for those who are patient to cellar it for a few years.
This Grand Cru from Saint-Émilion gathers up great bunches of fresh violets into a massive bouquet that heightens the rich plum fruit when the wine is tasted. Traces of leather also emerge.
Blend: 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc
