The robe is deep ruby in colour with purple glints.The nose reveals aroma of white pepper and figs, with perfectly integrated blueberry notes. Ageing in oak barrels from the Tonnellerie des Domaines in Pauillac adds subtle notes of nutmeg to the wine.This vintage shows an exceptional complexity. The fruit is bright and luminous, supported by well integrated oak and a refreshing acidity. The tannins are soft and silky and contribute to the wine’s persistence.This wine will reveal its complexity with further bottle ageing. Serve at 15-17°C.
The harmonious, classical and elegant 2018 Caro was produced with 76% Malbec and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the two grapes feel very integrated and complementary of each other. It has a very classical vinification and élevage in French barrique for 18 months. The oak is neatly integrated and folded into the fruit, the nose is complex, clean and elegant and the palate reveals a velvety texture with juicy fruit and round tannins. It should integrate the notes from the barrel with a little more time in bottle. 45,600 bottles and 1,250 magnums produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
