one of the two greatest d’Issans I have ever tasted. Kudos to proprietor Emmanuel Cruse for creating this beauty. Its dense purple hue is accompanied by aromas of camphor, forest floor, blackberries, cassis, and a hint of spring flowers. Full-bodied with superb richness, purity, texture, and abundant, sweet tannin, it should hit its stride.
(From 2006 Vintage) This is why people love Bordeaux. Not a great year but with a little age this is really doing great. Fresh and classic nose of bright red fruits, rocks and floral tones. This really comes alive on the palate, it's concentrated with tangy raspberry and earth but still has the tannins to balance and good acidity.
