1985 vintage. A very nice surprise and another testimony to the ageing potential of Bordeaux wines. At the time this estate was still owned by the Spanish Forner family (also Marques de Caceres Rioja). Solid colour. Tobacco and cedar wood dominate the nose, with a subtle hint of vanilla lurking in the background. Medium-bodied, with still good black fruit, fresh acidity and ripe tannin. Good cedary length too. No signs of fatigue at 37 years old. Well worth seeking out. Note that my bottle had a perfect level.

2015 vintage. A bit more Cabernet Sauvignon (57%) than Merlot. Cedary nose with a hint of caramel that comes back in the taste. A bit rustic with a dry short finish. Not up to Cru Classé quality

Solid well made wine. Big tick for drinkability. Red fruits, balanced acidity. Good wine for the price

Decanted for an hour. Still quite tannic and youthful, but has a nice core or fruit. I have one more and won’t be in a hurry to drink it.

うきうきワイン福袋税別3本1万円最後の一本、ボルドーの格付け5級。通常価格だと6千円〜7千円もするやつ。2006年はそこそこのヴィンテージらしい。
お上品で長熟らしくタンニンも滑らかなのですが、青臭さが気になります。
3千円前後のお味かと思います。

Decent Bordeaux. Has good bones but a bit dialed down if that makes any sense. Nonetheless a glass was quite good.

Fine but yet not from the most Supreme vintage... so should’ve had it a couple of years back i guess
