Aromas of raw meat and iron with a touch of integrated va. The flavors pop with plum, currant, cassis and a tight acid core. The medium weight tannins carry this wine nicely and it will probably age gracefully for another 5-8 years.

I was mentally prepared for a wine that had begun its slow descent. Instead, like a United security officer, it immediately punched me in the face, but in a sort of stately, gentlemanly sort of way. The broad-shouldered structure still manages to contain the pungent damp clay, fresh cherry, tea leaf, underbrush, tobacco, cedar, and worcestershire. For a second wine from a fifth growth, this seems to defy its age. Superb.

Out of a large lineup of 2000's, the only Bordeaux that caught my favor.

Rock solid classic Bordeaux with a little pyrazine and nice structure, still on the young side.

Pepper taste, more developed, well balanced taste, vegetal and some fruit. 2007 curious grape tasting.

Great with roasted chicken and hangar steak. Purchased from a French Institute wine tasting event.

For me, a little late to drink.
