Spice, black fruit, earl grey tea. m intensity. Moderate use of oak. Cabernet franc giving the wine a rustic edge.

Another great St Emilion. It took well over 4 hours to come out of its shell. Vibrant red fruits, firm tannin structure and a great complexity.

Sorry for the bad picture..but this Bordeaux rocked. Plenty of '09 ripeness, but a firm tannic structure kept things seriously balanced and good.

Nice and accessible Bordeaux! A tad on the young side, but drinking easily nonetheless.
