  • Im a New World, QPR-focused guy looking to expand my horizons by trying Old World product. Recently I saw a video comparing some of the best Bordeaux of the '05 vintage. This $25 bottle scored better than a $1,000+ Petrus and other premieres. Wow! I''m still trying to digest the meaning of that. For some CT'ers it's too oakey. Maybe so. However for this nose, its balance of fruit, acid, grip and length creates an enjoyable a terrific price!

  • plump and full bodied, quite aromatically expressive upon opening..... tightened up after a couple hours in the decanter.......very merlot, though perhaps not very Bordeaux

  • Really same notes as last time. This develops exceptionally well in the glass. I can see how this wine might be confused with a first growth. Well maybe at least in an off year. Very good wine.

  • Big wine and fruit forward, especially for a Bordeaux. Nose of graphite, black currant and prune with wood & earth. Soft but big with dark fruit dominating and a mid palate of mineral herbs and spices leading to a woodsy finish with spied dark fruit. Don't think that time would make this any better - it's simply a big dense wine with some finesse but ultimately not what I am hoping for in a Bordeaux, even for the $

  • Dark purple hue. Nose of graphite, black currants and oak. Medium plus bodied, drying astringent tannins, currants, over extracted dark fruit (raisin type quality), good acidity and a long finish. Tannins are not completely integrated and has some rough edges. Good but not great.
