surprised on the upside given vintage. cedar, pencil lead and a hint of green pepper on the nose. similar on palate, not overly fruity. length Ok. I'm glad I have some 2009 from this chateau as they seem to be delivering.
Usually an excellent estate, the 2007 suffers from being too young and also a bad vintage. Pepper and crunchy, green cab sav notes on the palate and nose - lacks acidity and tannic structure. Really needs to be drunk over the next couple of years, which for me is saying something - usually I wont touch my Bordeaux for 10 years.
