    (Chateau Dassault St Emilion) Dark and sweet fruit here, rather confected at the edge, with a cola-like quality to it. A little herbal too. It starts off quite cool on the palate, broadening out and fattening up a little, but always displaying a shell of fruit rather than a fuller substance. Plenty of good tannin, and the fruit character is appealing, with a very dark, style. It has a little balsamic edge to it as well. There are certainly some good characteristics here, but some elements do detract.

    (Château Dassault (St Emilion)) Attractive warm-vintage notes of roasted fruits and liquorice on the nose here, so there is certainly some appeal here. The palate carries on in the same vein, as it still possesses an impressive density and texture that fills out the mouth, and yet this comes with a mix of evolving dark fruit character, sweet tea leaf, liquorice, rose petal and oyster shell nuances. There is also plenty of grip underneath the fruit here, lots of substance and structure, and fresh acidity too. A wine still in its brawny youth, with more to give. Leave it alone if you have any.
