Very good value wine at approx. 22 euro. Ripe fruit on the nose, mild white pepper on the palate that softened after a day. Would buy again.

2009: lovely as ever. All classic ripe Cab Sauv, blackcurrant, cassis, and well integrated age and oak; meaty, leather, cedar, tobacco and lovely vibrant graphite pencil note. Becoming more resolved on the palate, good acid but softening tannic structure. Good

Excellent style, open and opulent. Dark blackcurrant, gravelly, graphite, stone, tobacco and ash. Well integrated green pepper and mint. Medium to full, good grainy tannic structure and vibrant acidity to back it up. Really coming into its own. Great length, and very good typicity

Great, very open mocha with juicy blackcurrant, perfumed with background notes of cedar & graphite. Palate also has plenty of light, open, juicy red berry fruit with a well judged lick of oak that comes through on the finish

Give this 72% Cab / 28% Merlot two hours in a decanter and you will be amply rewarded.

Great nose. Cassis, black currants and ash and lead pencil. So balanced. Love this.

Acceptable Bordeaux, strong in flavor, a little too strong to drink. Not bad, and inexpensive, but there are better cheap Bordeaux.

The couple of cases at my mother's house are being slowly depleted. A terrific wine and exceptional value.

Lovely structure, tannins just right, needs decanting to enjoy a soft finish
