I think this is a great value Bordeaux. Currant, red fruit, pencil and some green herbs. Reminds me of some 2007s, actually, but with a bit more substance and fruit. Good to drink now, but might improve.
The Sampler Winter Tasting 2012 (London): Lifted nose with menthol and blackcurrant leaf. Soft and approachable already but oddly sweet given the nose. And quite a long way from the Bordeaux norm. 15.5/20.
