Dark robe with a nice nose of tobacco, cigar box, asphalt and soil notes. Very elegant and polished tannins, complex, in a medium bodied and long finish. Very good now but will get better with 3 to 5 years in the cellar. One of our favorite bordeaux values. — 16 days ago
Bargain Bordeaux, still needs a decant while the steak 🥩 is being properly Souse Vided🤷🏼♂️
I don’t know why anyone would drink this without 20-30 years on it.
Pre arrival for 2020 is $14.00, so it will be enjoyable in 2045 more than likely.
Internet Notes as follows,
This is a property very close to Pauillac, and it's one to watch out for now, and in the future. These wines are well-made, value-driven, with good depth and length. Proprietor Patrick Bernard owns 50 hectares of gravel soils and with the aid of winemaker Xavier Michelet, produces elegant, silky, and vibrant Left Bank wines that won't break the bank.

Medium garnet , garnet rim . Quite herbal , dark cassis fruits , slightly unclean but the funk seems to blow off . Some dark fruits , lighter bodied . Fills out on the palate though slightly drying on the finish. Nice acidity , tannin quite resolved . Slightly rustic but good length and enjoyable . Tasted blind on 17/08/2022 — 21 days ago
Blackish purple robe, opulent nose of blackcurrant, tobacco, asian spices and a hint of violettes. Very elegant and somewhat tight tannins, medium bodied, long and complex. Drinking well now but oh has so much potential ! Great bottle of classic claret. — 23 days ago
The Bordeaux expression as we like to taste it unpretentious but with a lot of relief. Dark dress. Multidimensional rich nose. Soft mouth carried by unexpected aromas of fennel, plus aromas of blackcurrant, plum, undergrowth, oak, tobacco, very Bordeaux. Affordable and balanced. A classic
L’expression bordelaise comme on aime la goûter sans prétention mais avec beaucoup de relief. Robe sombre. Nez riche multidimensionnel. Bouche souple portée par des arômes inattendus de fenouil, plus des arômes cassis, prune, sous-bois, chêne, tabac, très bordelais. Abordable et équilibré. Un classique. — 18 days ago
Nose with dense dark rose and dark cherry. Palate with juicy acidity and well balanced approachable dark fruit, leather, some tobacco, and mouth tingling spice. Moderate long finish with a tough of grippy tannins at the end. Overall a unique and interesting Bordeaux. — 9 days ago
