Christmas Eve dinner 2018. 1500ml

@Delectable Wine This is the Denis Durantou Château Le Chenade Lalande-de-Pomerol, Red Bordeaux Blend, thanks.

Nose is blueberry, mocha dust and wet oak bark.
Palate has fine tannins, cherry, under-ripe blackberry, plum skin and faint green pepper.
A bottle likely enjoyed to young, this 2014 would likely be in a better drinking window in 2022-24.

Nice, appropriate maturity, and it was open for business.

Huge surprise. Did not feel like drinking Bordeaux, felt more like velvet and silk on the palate with violets. Extraordinary value.

Nice bottle! Not a lot of fruit on the front, but a nice smoke. This is ready to drink, edges are turning a bit. merci

As the Brits say: punching above its weight.

Pulled from my locker. Decanted and tried a few times over two hour period. Opened up into nice balance of red meets black berry profiles. I prefer right bank and this delivers.
