Lack of power and density, almost boring compared to the other wines tasted, smooth, light profile, to shy, a bit to simple for me for a Saint Estephe

Structured and linear, from a cooler vintage. Hint of iron shavings that is typical of St-Estephe.

В целом, сбалансированное и строгое по характеру вино. Большой потенциал.
Обязательно декантировать!

Цвет
Гранатовый с кирпичным краем

Нос
Интенсивность медиум
Джемовые ягоды, чёрная смородина, черешня, специи для выпечки, ваниль, Пряности

Рот
чуть шершавые, цепляющие Танины.
Кислотность хорошая
Тельное, со структурой
Вкус слива, черешня, перец, зеленые ноты (эвкалипт, мята)

Vaucluse is Michael White's Upper East Side French restaurant with a slight American twist. And so it is the wine list. Large sections of French wine are bookended by their US equivalents. Two pages of Burgundy are followed by a handful of Sonoma and Oregon Pinots. We stayed Old School and went for a Bordeaux. Red fruit, tar, leather, somewhat advanced beyond its decade of life. A tasty mid weight wine that was lovely with the rack of lamb and establishment atmosphere.
