The other wine we tasted, next to the Ch Pipeau - so we had a right bank bordeaux, and this one is a left bank bordeaux. In the beginning, this was closed, hard to drink, very tannic and has an astringent taste. After it was left to breathe for a while and with food, it showed a lot better. Noses of cherries and a bit of vanilla. It was earthy, slightly peppery, some minerals. Tannins were a bit acidic, finish was a bit hot but lingering. It does show a lot of character. I'd love to open one of these again in a couple more years, when its been aged for 10 yrs or more. Also need to have a piece of steak laying around when you open this one. WA 88-90; WS 89-91; WE 91

Young and slightly tannic with medium body and raisin with leather bouquet. Ripe fruit taste and opaque color. This wine will improve and should be left in the cellar until 2011 and beyond.

Lots and lots of leathery tannins. Also plenty of microscopic sediment that you wouldn't notice if you weren't looking closely. Don't let that scare you though because my wife didn't even notice it. She loved this wine, while I was apathetic. Nothing really stood out to me. It is not bad wine by any means. Just not very memorable. Anyways, this paired great with a roasted hunk of beef and al dente corn on the cob.

An inviting licorice and coffee nose. More licorice and stewed fruit on the palate with balance and elegance for the price with a lengthy, medium finish. Tannins are soft and approachable now - although this wine could be racked in the cellar for 2-3 more years. A decent rendering of the Haut-Medoc at a reasonable price. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival.

2003 was a year of drought in Bordeax. The vines were stressed, and the fruit highly extracted. The 2003 Caronne was a beautiful color, and the black fruit and briar assaulted your senses. It was somewhat fruit forward, with layers of fruit, herbs, and very low acidity. It was a bit astringent on the finish, but this characteristic should fade as it picks up a few years in the cellar.

Considerable depth of flavor here, with complex ripe tannins, topping the dense black fruits. Therersquo;s spice from the wood, some stalky tannins from the fruit, and an edge of youth that will need 3ndash;4 years to show its potential.

[Barrel tasting] Lots of berry and chocolate character with hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Impressive. Almost hard to believe, itrsquo;s so good. Almost 92ndash;94.

Complex, classic Bordeaux elegance with a depth and purity of fruit found only in the greatest of vintages. Blackberries, cedar, anise and wild blueberries flavor this medium- to full-bodied Cabernet blend. Young and balanced, this wine holds promise for 10ndash;15 years of enjoyment.

Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.

Offers raisin and dried fruit with very ripe fruit aromas and coffee and oak undertones. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long finish. This is pumped up but I like the flamboyant character. Best after 2011.
