Audouzed 3hrs, with lamb cutlets. In line with my previous note, this is a young but lovely wine. No more than medium bodied, but fresh & light on its feet. The Cab Franc element really came to the fore today with tasty blackberry & graphite flavours into the finely tannic finish.

(Chateau Teyssier St Emilion) A deep, rich hue in the glass. The fruit is rather restrained at first, although it is certainly there; not well defined perhaps, a melange of dark forest berries, overlaid with a layer of youthful oak which still needs to be shed to gain maximum enjoyment here I think. On the palate though, there is plenty of promise. Richly textured, weighty, in keeping with the vintage, but carried along by a fine substance and acidity. Rich, somewhat savoury, and firm in the finish, this is a young wine from a very reliable estate which has plenty of promise for the future. Nevertheless, after some time in the glass, I found it worked very well with food.
