Chateau Puybarbe's second medium-bodied wine made from the same parcels and same blend as Le Roc but aging with French oak staves for 11 months. Merlot 88% - Cabernet Sauvignon 12% with small percentages of Malbec and Cabernet Franc.

Ripe bramble and cassis on the nose combined with some mint as well as vanillin and spice from the oak-aging. Delicious full-bodied wine with abundant fruit and soft acidity, but still quite grippy tannins. There's complexity of aromas and taste that will improve with further aging.
