Inspired by bullmrkt's recent note I popped it open last night and I was impressed how well it was drinking. Red fruited and very elegant with some herbal funkiness on the finish. On night two, the wine tightened and more of the tannic structure came forward. I can't believe this cost less than $20.
Subtle smoke and barnyard funk, red fruits, cedar, smooth clean finish. This is so well balanced that it seems to be weightless on the palate, and embodies what I love about Bordeaux. I continue to be impressed with the 2008 Bordeaux vintage, and they are great values in the wake of '09/'10 to boot.
Smoke, stable and plum on the nose. Taste needs time to open up, but then shows layers of ripe fruit, tannin and acid in balance and a surprisingly long aftertaste, needs food, but a good, quite classic right bank bordeaux.

(Chateau Plince Pomerol) Toasty oak on the nose here, alongside smoky fruit, overall very nice aromatics. A nice creamy start, firmer midpalate, slightly sooty extracted tannins giving a hard structure. A middleweight with a firm, tannic structure. Nice potential though.
