One of only 18 Cru Classe, or First Classified Growth, it’s been made since 1950. It is brightly intense, with a note of tart lemon and herbs with green tomato and persimmon. Acid driven and lean, it has granny smith apples, green strawberries, and a smooth soft texture. The finish has melons and tropical citrus. Pair it with eggs, salads, fried food, and baked brie.
