La Tour Melas 2011
(La Tour Melas Grand Vertical, cool September, 900 mm of rainfall, 52% Cabernet Franc, 48% Merlot, 4.700 bottles). Ripe on the nose with black fruit yet the Cabernet Franc excels and gives the beat. Harmonious and velvety on the palate drinking perfectly now. Black cherries, spices and rosemary nuances. Slightly drying tannins.
