Community Tasting Notes 20

    August 14, 2017 - An unpleasant nose upon opening which suggested that perhaps this wine is past its prime. Upon initial taste there was also something sour overpowering the intended blend that I could detect beneath. After thirty minutes the wine opened a bit and I could taste more of a lower end Bordeaux might taste like.

    July 16, 2016 - As expected from the warm '09 vintage, this blend of Merlot (63%), Cabernet Sauvignon (32%), and Cabernet Franc (5%) has a lovely nose of ripe plum, warm blackberry and raspberry, and dark cherry, along with earth, graphite, and a creamy lactic note. There isn't much fruit on the palate, and hardly any depth, but there's some nice sour cherry mixed with black pepper, herbs, chocolate, and replays of earth and graphite, along with a touch of medicinal mint and licorice. It dries out quickly, and it probably isn't going to get any better, but it's quite acceptable, if given air, a decent, inexpensive Bordeaux from Maison Sichel, the owners of the rather more famous Château Palmer and Château d'Angludet.

    September 19, 2014 - Nice Bourdeaux for the price; drinking well right now; good fruit and structure with a medium-long finish.
