 Tasted by LIE-user on 4/12/2014 & rated 84 points: Difficult to do it justice. Somehow diluted. Is it meant to be like this or not? (843 views)
 Tasted by GrapesRGreat on 11/30/2012 & rated 88 points: Pretty good QPR on this after a few years of age. Still has a tannic grip, but some of the secondary aromatics typical of Bordeaux are starting to show through. Fruit flavor may die off before the tannins are fully resolved, but good for a few more years at least. (1980 views)
 Tasted by akisthename on 12/18/2011 & rated 88 points: Opened this bottle and drank it with friends. found it quite pleasant but nothing to brag about. The wine had an earthy taste to it and was easy enough to drink. (2785 views)
 Tasted by jcsf420 on 10/27/2011 & rated 86 points: After an hour the nose opens up revealing cherry, tobacco and even a slight gamey note. The tannins dominate the palate, has good acidity, and dark fruit which combine for a long finish. (2994 views)
 Tasted by rjsmall on 2/2/2010: Dark, solid red brick colour; slight purple on edges. Blueberries on nose maybe even a meaty note with a slight tabacco. Big tannis with balancing acidity. Nice dryness with a touch of oak. Long length. Peppery, black fruits and leather. (3959 views)
 Tasted by VHJV on 7/3/2009 & rated 88 points: Surprisingly good generic Bordeaux that has a nice nose of berries and tobacco. Mouthfeel is also nice and smooth and taste is in good balance. 2005 vintage is really showing its strenght in these lower-end offerings. Needs about an hour of air to develop its bouquet.

 Tasted by Villon on 1/22/2009 & rated 87 points: Bien, mais sans grande personnalité. (3094 views)
 Tasted by stercomm on 11/30/2008 & rated 86 points: Opened this for a dinner, none of the crew are much of a Bordeaux fan, all thought this was interesting. This bottle, getting a nose full of cherries and some tobacco. On the palate a very smooth, well intergated wine, fruit and tannins are weaved rtogether in an interesting way, acid is well balanced, not a bad Bordeaux for the price. (3146 views)
 Tasted by cgrimes on 10/17/2008 & rated 84 points: OK early drinker. Needs some air. Not surprisingly MUCH better than the 2007 also tasted. (3066 views)
 Tasted by stercomm on 9/30/2008 & rated 87 points: Nose is full of cherries and very nice fruit flavors with a hint of tobacco. On the palate a very smooth, well intergated wine, lots of fruit, tannins are subtle, acid is well balanced, a very nice Bordeaux for the price. (3100 views)
 Tasted by rjsmall on 8/31/2008: Slightly closed and a bit of a damp fruit nose. Slightly harsh. Perhaps needed to breath longer. (3030 views)
 Tasted by isbjoern on 3/17/2008 & rated 87 points: Very beautiful nose of cherries and vanilla notes. Medium body, great structure and harmony. Great mouthfeel from very balanced soft tannins, clean fruit and well matching acidity levels. An outstanding Bordeaux for €5. A great wine for everyday food pairing. Wish I had bought more. Drink now. (3191 views)
