Falling in love with this wine again. It was brilliant a few years ago, and I was worried it could be at peak now, but 9 years of age and still going strong!  This is surely one of the best values I have ever found @ €6 during Paris foire du Vin. Easily could fetch €60+ in a different bottle. Undergrowth and oak influence is strong and balanced. I feel like you can almost taste the earthy terroir's influence.  Notes of 🍒, cassis, framboise. Thick, medium to full bodied and solid acidity. Potential for aging a bit more.

Green olives dominate ... Lots of Merlot notes. Getting ahead of myself. Deep opaque ruby, with organgy rim. Very vegetal... Green olive, green bell pepper, perhaps some evergreen, the palate adds oak, nutty, hint of vanilla.

It's a little weighty, tired? Good not great.

Not bad for the price, may have been slightly past its prime. But also 7 years old, so might've just been the dip many Bordeaux see around that age. Nice spice, good flavors, just a bit dulled.
