Can't remember having this before, but I'm super impressed. Some pine needles. A tad hot but young. I really need to study France and Bordeaux wines more. The country has always taken a back seat to Italy and Spain for me, so maybe starting today things change?

Well blended Right Bank Bordeaux, complex enough to possibly trick you into thinking its a more full bodied Left Bank. Smooth medium finish, all the right notes of black fruits and that wonderful earthy sense that makes old world fans enjoy! Pairs very well with cheese and crackers or a nice steak. This is an outstanding Chateau' and this bottle reflects that!

Blueberry and spice with hints of chocolate. A chalky finish. Good value but overrated; there are better options out there.
