On Emirates flight. Dark garnet almost to the rim, smooth dark fruit and spices, on the mid-palate the wines has this slight hollowness from a so so vintage and a slightly clipped finish. Nevertheless this is pretty good for an 07.
Heavily recommended in this year's 'foire des vins'. Yet again I find myself disappointed by a medium-priced Bordeaux. I think this wine is one of those that does well at tastings, but it's not a wine you want to spend time with. The nose is excellent, meaty, perfumed, blackcurrant, warm leather. In the mouth: thin, only light to medium bodied, acid and still some tannin. I'll try to stick to my own advice and not to drink the second bottle until at least 2017, but I don't hold out much hope.
