The color is an attractive dark ruby, reflecting the careful grape selection process. The nose and flavor profile of dark fruits, plum and cedar notes are nicely balanced with acidity and tannin structure on the palate. An elegant wine with both power and finesse. A dry and refreshing finish completes the wine.
There is slightly more structure here than most of the wines from this humble appellation possess, but that is a sign that it is probably capable of lasting more than 1-3 years. This is more proof that Bordeaux can still offer tremendous value. Earth, licorice, and Christmas fruitcake as well as a lush texture make for a very appealing and charming generic Bordeaux
