Réserve de la Comtesse (0.75 L)
NM: The Reserve de la Comtesse is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot and is aged in 30% new oak. It displays good intensity on the nose with blackcurrant, bilberry and a touch of crushed violet. Underneath, there is a hint of freshly tilled soil. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry, hints of dried orange peel inflecting the blackberry and tobacco tinged fruit. It has a supple texture with a sorbet-like finish. Very fine. Tasted April 2012.
