Neutral and quaffable Bordeaux, not a standout, but a good representation of the appellation

Surprisingly good value for the appellation. Just the right amount of fruit, tannins, vegetal notes and spice

Excellent QPR! Good purity of fruit, nice acidity. Really was showing nicely after a 2 hour decant.

Perfect truffle and leather on the nose, with just enough green grass. Rich berry and mineral, with a faint vanilla finish. 90+ points.

Watery, green tannin on the palate. Doesn't last long.

Decanted one hour. Slightly faded, with rim gradation. This is still in its adolescence, but showing well. Classic black currant/cherry nose. On the palate rather tight still, pepper, leather, flint. Plenty of acid and tannins to go around. Fantastic QPR.
