This bottle was an attempt to find value in Bordeaux, i was pleasantly surprised, located parallel to Pauillac this Chateau produces good wine. The nose has a pronounced complexity, cedar/pencil nose reminds me of St Julian. The palette is light to medium but carries the complexity from the nose. Overall I'm impressed and will watch this Chateau going forward.
Popped and poured, I wouldn't recommend a decant personally. Lovely casisy nose with mature secondary smells, on the pallets again soft aged fruit, very pleasant. I'd say this bottle has a life span of about an hour after opening so don't do what I did and open it on your own.
