So good I had to have two! A gorgeous wine, and surely what anyone could hope to find in good value BDX. Rich, gentle and somewhat smokey nose. Quite dark fruited, with blackberry, bramble and singed tobacco leaf. This is a great example of right bank Bordeaux, with supple, enveloping fruit and chalky tannins, and characteristic aromas. 100% merlot. Though only four years of age, I have to say this drinks very well now. It probably doesn’t have the stuffing to age decades, so I’d drink between now and the next ten years. Still, acidity very high and finishes long. Excellent quality and very good value.
