Sipping Fine Wine

Situated between Martillac and St Médard d'Eyrans, in the south of the Pessac-Léognan appellation in the Graves region, an ancient estate whose origins are lost in the mists of time. It appears on the map drawn up by Belleyme in 1760. Nice fruit nose with ripe plum and berry flavors with cinnamon spice. Fine tannins on lingering mineral finish.

Day 3: Cedar bark, tobacco, forest leaves, blueberry preserves. Dark fruit wrapped in leather with hints of baking spice. Mid palate is hollow and falls short. Finishes with a tart cranberry with hints of sweet oak. Drink now with a quick decant.

Really lucky find surprise at Total Wine. It wouldn’t ring up and manager told me she found it in the wrong bin and was stunned they had any left. I can concur, there are good value Bordeaux, and just Good Bordeaux. This falls in the later category. Really silky and big mouth feel with already integrated tanin. Blackberry, herb, and dusty undertones. Great wine with huge QPR upside.

Smooth, no tannins. Slightly bland, but very nice flavor. Could probably use a little more aging.

My first Bordeaux and I loved it. Paired well with Steak and Lobster tail on Valentine's Day.
