This was way closed when I last had it maybe 3 years ago. It’s very nice now. Very much old school Cru Bourgeois. Cedar and underbrush-infused cassis and dark berry fruit. Some gravel. A leaner styled Bordeaux. Cooling, graphite and ink-like minerality. Very linear. Still some drying tannins, but very good length and balance. If you’re looking for a 14.5 New World lookalike, avoid this. If you want to taste what solid working class Bordeaux tasted like around 1980, pre-global warming, this is it.

Simple, correct, classic Bordeaux without being astringent or overripe. Slightly lacking in complexity at this youthful stage but has enough tannins and acidity to age for 5-8 years. Hope it improves.

A strong start but mostly tasteless. You're left with some tannins but no complexity. Dunno where others smelled/tasted fruits but we did not. A big disappointment for the $45.

Dark purple with aromas of red and black fruit and spicy notes. Palate displays sour fruit, unripe cherries, harsh tannins that cooled off after a while. Finish is medium combined with alcohol burn. Tried again, still disappointed. No long term aging potential. Drink Now.

Dark purple color. Aromas of red fruit and spice. Palate displays sour fruit, unripe cherries, somewhat tannic and harsh at first but calmed down by the end of the bottle. Finish is medium combined with burning alcohol. No long term aging potential. Drink Now!

Trying against 2012. This has more Cab Franc and no Petite Verdot. Much brighter on the mouth. Was Smokey at first but opened up to more acidity.

Juicy with staunch tannin. Great for the price. $10 C
