Tasting Notes:
tasted: August 8, 2009 , Mel Collard
91 points " Ruby/garnet and almost clear. Signs of aging and overall a classic Bordeaux appearance. Looks fantastic. On the nose strong cherry, slight vegetal, minerals, sweet blackcurrant, oak and fresh cut hay. Likewise, the immediate flavor was also strong cherry followed by liquorish, blackcurrant jam, raisin and, as the wine progressed, blackcurrant became more dominant. The tannin is still present and a very good concentration. Chewy with an excellent balance. Both the nose and the palate showed good signs of aging and this is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. At the price, more than excellent." Best 2007-2014

3 stars " Deep saturated colour, very attractive, soft Merlot-ish bouquet, deeply concentrated, but also rather overripe and raisiny, very big wine, high tannins, low acidity." Best 2007-2014
