Tasting Notes

The 2008 Cuvée Jean Gautreau is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked between September 24 and October 5. It has a fresh bouquet of tobacco-infused black fruit mixed with earthy/woodland aromas, the oak nicely integrated. The saline palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit, a fine line of acidity and a bit of chewiness on the finish. Give this another couple of years. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet.
