This value priced Haut Médoc comes from a property that literally sits astride the border with Pauillac (seven contiguous hectares actually fall within the Pauillac appellation with the wine sold as La Fleur Peyrabon, Pauillac). This is, quite frankly, astonishingly good. The wine is just beginning to show hints of some bottle age. While still deeply colored, youthful purple is beginning to give way to garnet at the rim. There is a hint of cedar on the nose. On the palate loads of ripe dark fruit - bright, tart blackberry and sweet black plum. Well-integrated oak adds complexity and spice. Smooth-textured, rich and round with fine tannins. Ready to drink. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc.
