Really confused about this wine. I had the same vintage from a half bottle a few weeks ago from the same merchant and it was classic French and great! This one was totally different. Much more American like, but was rough and even a little over the hill. Lacked earth and fruit, and was very harsh on the palate. I did give it almost an hour decant. Weird!

What a lovely find today!! Was in search of a half bottle to pair with a half bottle I already had and found this gem @ £25! Now you have to like that classic, powerful French Bordeaux smell or you’ll absolutely hate this.

30+ minutes open in the bottle. Dark red color. The nose smells like you just walked through cow shit and then past a herd of horses on your way to Paris! Love it! Wine has depth and structure, but finish is medium at best. Excellent QPR and I plan to try more of the better vintages. Love when things like this happen!!

Found this to be MUCH better the next day.. IMO a good table wine, not a great value for the price

Young, a bit over-oaked.

Cherry backed up by forest floor and mocha flavors. Inky, medium-bodied. Not the best vintage, but still well done and well priced in an uneven year. Got for $32 at Costco.

Opened up after an hour or two in the decanter. Started soft and full of earth notes.
