Great example of northern Medoc Bordeaux, ripe black fruit, full body and silky tannins

Good Bordeaux, well-made if uninteresting. The fruit is subdued, and the finish is very acidic (too much so). Still, this is a quality Bordeaux at a reasonable price.

Great QPR on#winetext. Plum, cassis, pipe smoke, and leather. Dry, chewy tannins with ripe dark berry pie and plum fruits. Soft and smooth to finish with subtle earthy green notes. Drink now or hold for a couple years.

Holy tannins batman! Let this breathe for 90mins, and it gets better. Not my favorite cru borgeois, but complex and a wonderful food wine.
