Tasting Note: This wine is an essential for me every vintage. It always over delivers on price and quality. This vintage is something that is a leap above what has come before it. The blend consists of 57% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, and 6% Petit Verdot. The nose is pencil shaving and cocoa powder over black currant and raspberry. When you take your first sip le Grand Vin enters your mouth with cherry and strawberry. This wine then moves to black currant, blackberry and dark plum. When the wine starts to finish it blooms into subtle violet. The floral note on this wine lingers as it moves to cocoa powder. This wine is quite tight and closed if you open it now, but it will start to open up with an hour in a decanter. While this will be approachable young I anticipate this wine will age for 10-15 years with ease in a proper cellar. Score - 5 Stars (out of 5). (André Proulx, andrewinereview.ca, Oct. 20, 2016)
