From the owners of Château Magnat in Saint-Emilion. A blend of 70% Merlot, 22% cabernet franc and 8% cabernet sauvignon. A bit rustic, especially in the finish, but decent value.

Medium to full bodied, ripe blackcurrent, dark, slightly sour cherry, fresh zip of acidity, thick pillowy tannin, nice long dry savoury finish. Took a good couple of hours to fill out. 70% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. 12€, good value.

Costco FIND!! QPR up the wazoo. Buy several bottles now. Too good to be a table wine. Too cheap not to drink every day. Brandied pears on the nose: all that clove and cinnamon and fruit steeped in ancient liquor that sat in fFrench oak for ages. Plums. Cassis. Followed by Heat and a long lasting finish that feels like an UNwrapped/unsmoked FRESH cigar.

I’m not as excited as some of the posts. But price is very good. You have to like a tannic 2015 and are not new to young Bordeaux style wines. I would have waited several years before I drank this. If you have the time to store than drink enjoy.
