Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Bright red-ruby.  Sexy aromas of currant, chocolate and flowers, plus hints of cedar, smoky oak.  Plump, lush and fine-grained, showing a remarkably seamless texture for a second wine.  Very ripe flavors of currant, mocha, beefsteak tomato and chocolate turn a bit roasted in the glass.  Finishes with a smooth dusting of tannins and ripe, chocolatey persistence.  I'd drink this wine over the next decade.  (This chateau's flagship wine is clearly more delineated, more tannic and longer than this wine but it's still a bit too ripe for my taste.)
