Community Tasting Notes 4

    March 27, 2018 - No formal note as consumed at a work event. A simple wine that I recall was more approachable than a Fleur de Bouard 2012 (the FdB being much bigger and tannic). Decent enough, but fairly straightforward and forgettable.

    November 8, 2015 - Medium bodied, soft and silky smooth, the licorice and black cherry focused wine is definitely going to deliver its pleasures early. The wine was made from a blend of 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    April 7, 2013 - 2012 En Primeur - Kelly and Kevin’s excellent adventure; 4/4/2013-4/9/2013 (Bordeaux, France): I always seem to like this wine at EP. Opulent blue fruits, blueberry jam, fresh blueberries, excellent concentration, bright acidity, silky palate and noticeable but not obtrusive tannins.
