Smooth, balanced and a perfect match with a classic French meal in the Medoc

Tannins are typically a bit rough but the wine is pleasant

1995v. Past it's prime. Kirsch with mocha notes and not much else. I really want to like this more.

Ripe, modern, well-made merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon. A bit soul-less and generic to ever crave a second bottle.

My last bottle of a few, and perhaps the best. Classic nose, fruit is still there with some cedar, ash and leather. Still lots of power in the palate, but softened into complex elegance. Well worth the wait, even for such an underrated vintage. I should re-stock on Haut Marbuzet, which has remained affordable.
