Community Tasting Note

    July 25, 2018 - I bought exactly one bottle of Le Defi 15 or so years ago and have held it ever since. Why does this make it difficult to open such a bottle? Alas. This is very good wine. It is bolder than I expected. I politely disagree with the two most recent reviewers in that I find this to have copious Right Bank characteristics. Bountiful red fruit, well resolved tannin, a bit of the typical tertiary Bordeaux flavors but not much. This is great now and I doubt it will improve from here - that said, it sure feels like it's full of stuffing and will last for a long time. Cheers.
