Solid well made wine. Big tick for drinkability. Red fruits, balanced acidity. Good wine for the price

Decanted for an hour. Still quite tannic and youthful, but has a nice core or fruit. I have one more and won’t be in a hurry to drink it.

Total Bordeaux package- wet cedar, licorice and black currant, malted milk ball, Turkish tobacco- palate is a complex medley of interwoven fruit, toasty oak, and bitter earthy flavors with a hint of menthol. Chewy with a super long finish.

The acidity in this wine is searing, a pity given that Carmensac is a Grand Cru Classé. I can only guess that it's one of the 2011 vintage that didn't fare well. Aromas of blackberries, black currants and black cherries are bolstered by vanilla and cedar. It's quite thin and tight on the palate, lacking in generosity, with (as previously mentioned) very high acidity, firm tannins and a green, cedary finish. 13.0% ABV |

Crazy amounts of Brett and badly corked, sadly... 2000 vintage.

Hmm- a little soft and bretty, but tastes like velvety old bordeaux
