 Tasted by nc99 on 2/9/2015 & rated 85 points: Way over the peak. The green note was overwhleming and distracting. (492 views)
 Tasted by Xavier Auerbach on 3/27/2007 & rated 90 points: An excellent 1975. Fully mature but perfectly vital, cedar and earth, lovely core of fruit, juicy, lovely balance, tannins in check, dried cherries, good length. A fine wine. (2557 views)
 Tasted by Xavier Auerbach on 12/21/2003 & rated 93 points: Eleven years ago, this was very impressive but still a bit raw. Now perfectly mature, with a rich, saturated colour; a rich, deep nose of blackcurrants, cedar and spices (cinnamon, cloves) with a lovely, ripe sweetness; on the palate rich, ripe, brooding, fleshy, shapely, harmonious acidity, tannins in check, lovely extract, dried cherries, red meat; long. Now - 2005. (1884 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 4/12/2003 & rated 82 points: Brown edge. In the bouquet coffee, not so pleasant pig stable and peas. Tertiary taste as well with a lot of acidity and tannin. Tannin of the kind that will never soften. Still a firm wine, but not really beautiful. In my mind is that this wine was much more beautiful about 10 years ago, when the fruit could handle the tannin. So if ever I find my older notes, I will publish them here as well. I score the wine anyway. (This was probably 8-10 points higher in the past.) (2800 views)
 Tasted by LWI on 9/11/1989 & rated 86 points: Good body below the severe tannins. However, I guess the tannins will never soften sufficiently before the fruit has gone. (3004 views)

Red Bordeaux Blend

Read about the grapes used to produce Bordeaux The variety Red Bordeaux Blend in CellarTracker implies any blend using any or all of the five traditional Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. As such, this is used worldwide, whether for wines from Bordeaux, Meritages from California and Canada, some Super-Tuscan wines etc.

Médoc

Vins du Médoc (Conseil des Vins du Médoc) - Read More about the Medoc
The eight precisely defined appellations of the whole of the Médoc (from Blanquefort Brook to the north of the Bordeaux built-up area, almost to the Pointe de Grave) may claim the Médoc appellation. But there is also a specific territory in the north of the peninsula which produces exclusively wines with this appellation. In the great majority, the Médocs come from the north of the peninsula. The great individuality of this region is that the number of vines has increased more recently here than elsewhere, apart from a few isolated spots where vines have grown for many years. Today, the size of the small estate has brought about the development of a powerful co-operative movement. Four co-operatives out of five belong to the group called Unimédoc which ensures aging, bottling and marketing a large proportion of their wines.
