50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc
The wine is almost black in color. The complex, intensely fresh bouquet opens on toasty notes, enhanced by powerful black fruit aromas. The wine is generous, full-bodied and silky on the palate, and gains structure from the extremely fine-grained Cabernet tannins, which envelop the palate and are present throughout the tasting. It evolves towards an impressively long finish. The body, structure and freshness of the wine are remarkably well-balanced. An extremely elegant wine with a great ageing potential.
Blueberry, coffee, bark and chocolate aromas follow through to a full body with round tannins that are chewy and polished at the same time. Pretty depth of fruit and composure to this wine. Old-vine cuvee with 45 years of age. 50% merlot and 50% cabernet franc.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cuvée Jean Gabriel—a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc—spills out of the glass with scents of ripe red and black plums, redcurrant jelly and Morello cherries with wafts of mossy tree bark and damp soil. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers a good amount of juicy red and black fruits with a soft texture and just enough freshness, finishing earthy.
