Needs room to breath. It's got a wonderful taste. Paired well with blue cheese and honeycomb dessert.

An acceptable bargain Bordeaux. Rustic and scrappy, with a sense of place, and admirable flesh. The wine definitely sheds much of its musk over night. I'm hoping for a large volume estate like this, that there might be lesser vintage variation so that I may enjoy these for the rest of the century after the 2009 and 2010s have sold out.

Not too dry, very drinkable, and just a touch of sweetness. Would pair very well with grilled beef or lamb. Dark red fruits come up first on the nose and linger after drinking as well.

Bought for 9 euros in corner wine store in 12th. Made mistake of drinking a few glasses before letting it open up. Someone else called it musky. I'd agree. But once it sheds musk, after a couple of hours, it shows off its restrained fruit. Could age for a bit.

Very nice but I think a little pricey for the effort, especially after drinking some really phenomenal North Fork wines recently!

2010, Chateau De Camarsac, Selection Vieilles Vignes Bordeaux, 65% Merlot 35% Cabernet. A good, inexpensive Bordeaux. This has potential to get better with a few years aging. Black fruit, cedar, a little mushroom. Tannins are not very prominent and the alcohol is fairly low at 13.5 ABV. An easy drinking bottle now and will probably improve for the next 3 years but I wouldn't hold it any longer. I still have a couple of 2005 and that vintage has improved over 10 years.
