Tasting Comment

Appareance

Bright, very youthful, medium intensity, with attractive deep purple highlights.

Nose

Sebastien Ravilly, cellarmaster at Tour de Ségur, is careful to preserve all the wine's fruit character, and the cherry is immediately noticeable, sublimated by light menthol notes.

Mouth

The palate is balanced, very smooth and succulent. Very attractive. Will be drinkable in a year or two, and will please the most demanding of connoisseurs. Enjoy at 16°-17°C with delicatessen or white meats. (January, 2012)
