WA90 drink 2011-2025 Tasted single blind at Southwold. A very ripe, sumptuous bouquet engendered with a sorbet-like character: orange/mango notes coming through although it is lacking a little focus (though no greenness that it showed out of barrel.) The palate is better: soft, harmonious and approachable, clean and svelte on the finish with a touch of spice/ black cedar-infused fruits. Very fine, nice purity – this is a great showing. Drink 2011-2025. Tasted January 2009.
it's a typical French wine: don't waste your time with this kind of wine. Just a regular one, in spite of the fact that 2005 season was considered the best in the decade (wine spectator gave a 99 rate to this season).
International Wine CellarGood bright ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, flowers and mint. Cool, juicy and leanish but with good lift to the pure red fruit flavors. Ultimately conveys a rather austere impression, with the finish showing a tart quality and firm tannic spine. The team did a shorter than normal maceration at cool temperature in search of a fruity wine. Perhaps a bit undernourished.
