I seldom encounter wines from Bordeaux, offering loads of pleasure at bargain prices. This is a great exception! Well done.

Great acid, velvety tannins, a little dried cranberry and herb. Good for steak!

Crazy amazing Bordeuax value from Castillon. Try the 09 and 10... This is also very good but a little too extracted for my taste today

Simple but delicious, showing a little maturity but the fruit is ripe and the tannins ripe and velvety smooth.

Quite good. Great acidity and a brambly nose. Fruitnpalate is blackberries. Tannins are smooth and really set off the finish.

Smells immediately of pepper and fennel. Medium most. Sharp. Spicy on the back end.

If Michel Rolland is your go-to guy you'll love it. If he's not you won't. Not for me to rate this wine so...8.0. New Worlders will give it high 8s...or even higher.
