So deliciously off-vintage. Light, fresh, yet tertiary. And so much gravel.

Moderate garnet core with bricking at the rim. Aromas of cigar box, dried red fruits, and a hint of VA. Thin and acidic on the palate with little structure and a tart, clipped finish. Was a decent entry level Bordeaux at one time but now definitely on the decline.

Back to everyday wines Bordeaux CVed 11/13/17. JR wine. Floral earthy nose and great balanced palate and good finish. Good value at less than twenty. Opened 2/19/18. Nose has some oxidative resin sherry notes that's not bad but makes you wonder about CV (bit of cork stain from the CV). Still a lively ave good wine.

Nice typical nose. The palate isn't ample but shows a nice evolution. Oak fully integrated, round and nice tannins, a finish on red berries and strawberry jam. Nice wine. Less than 9€

Nice, solid as granite. Fruit on the nose. Green pepper and black berry with a dry as stone finish.
