Wine Description

(From 2004 Vintage) The 2004 is a very seductive wine, displaying aromas of cassis, black cherries, pomegranite and cedary oak. Medium bodied and boasting soft ripe tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

Looking for a great deal in Bordeaux? Look no farther - this has got to be one of the steals of the century. Dark and rich, just starting to drink beautifully, try a glass of this nectar with grilled mushrooms and medium rare steak. "Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, violets and currants lead to this full-bodied wine with velvety tannins. Lovely finish delivers a juicy berry aftertaste. One of the best buys of the vintage."Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2002

    (From 2005 Vintage) Given its vintage and the success of its neighbors, this slightly underfilled offering must be considered as something of disap-pointnment. Narrow and fairly tight-fisted, but never suggesting that it has the fruit that will allow it to blossom with time, it is instead a bit thin and fades away early.
