Here is a great value second wine from a grand Chateau which is at its prime right now. Medium to full bodied. Appealing appearance with good clarity and a deep ruby core. Fragrant aromas of plum and chocolate. On the palate yet more fruit as well as some herbal and spicy notes. The tannins are soft and well integrated leading to a long finish which leaves lingering notes of spice again. This is one of the "special" second wines. Enjoy it between now and the next 2-3 years.
