Deeply flawed wine. Tastes like some of the red grapes got Grey rot and then the grapes weren’t sorted. Foul.

Overall solid performance with a good fruit ripeness and energetic backbone with some layered complexity, a well integrated oak profile. Balanced throughout, but lacking some length to reach higher.

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.
