Dark purple color. Big aromas of juicy black fruits and sweet spice notes. Palate displays ripe fruit blackberries, cherries and raspberry with vanilla spice, floral and bits of leather. Big round tannins, combined with some mineral notes on the long rich finish. Very nice offering. Elegant.

Time for some #MerlotThursday.

This is a very young,
yet approachable, Right Bank Bordeaux with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

Dry and fruity on the palate with wood, vanilla, earth, spices, leather, tobacco, milk chocolates, black pepper, vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Long finish with grippy tannins and tangy cranberries.

Already delicious and will age nicely in the next 15 years. Needs 3 hours to open up properly.

A blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc.

14% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.

This one has the stuffing to be good in the long run, but it needs more time. Soft nose of sweet kirsch, red flowers. Palate has some intense berry fruit and a slight muskiness but it’s very tightly wound and not really coming out to play. Revisit in 5-8.

1978vintage. Wow. Those Merlot grapes still giving some tasty fruit. Acid and tannin so smooth. Plums, cherry coke, vanilla and cedar.
