at les sources de caudalie; medium body; red currant and baking spices with minor oak and good acidity; i dont notice the tannins that much; elegant but still a bit too potent for the pigeon and lobster
MAYBE NOT. A decent MOR bordeaux with a good deep colour but not much beyond the promise that it could more. Had a good cb turn to it but not clear that it would do or whether it could even be any better (Toulouse, 2010).

(Chateau Latour-Martillac Pessac-Léognan) There are lots of ripe fruits on the rather forward, open nose of this wine, perfumed in character, with a layer of oak. But the palate disappoints; it has a hollow centre, and lacks texture. Thin and perhaps over-extracted as there is an incongruous wall of tannin to match. A great shame, as the nose held some promise.
