Bordeaux superior from the fantastic 2009 vintage , a great value for money (about 13$ here in Switzerland). This blend is Merlot driven with 85% Merlot, 5% CS, 5% CF and 5% Malbec, modern Style. Coming from a small chateau who is producing wine for the 4th generation. It has a deep dark color, a lovely nose full of black fruits, black current and a touch of smoked oak and coffee, medium to full body with dry tannins and good acidity. Long dry finish. Needs still a bit of time. My score 87, drink to 2019.

Good, not great. Perhaps too much charred oak.
