Great Bordeaux for the price. Fruity on the nose, deep purple color with a rich earthy mouth. Needs more aging for a better finish though.
June 2012, ready to drink. A very pleasant Bordeaux for the price. Crushed berries framed by medium tannins and a nice evolution with earthy notes and chocolate powder. I am having it with filet mignon.
12/12/2009: drinking fine but the time to air and the tannins make me think this would be better in about another 3-5 years. Decent acid, tannins present, not overwhelming but not light. fairly classic bordeaux taste of the earthy plum, blackberry. still reasonable fruit. Other reviews have talked about the nose, this nose was dead, nothing there but suprisingly the wine drank well. Given the price, this was a super bargain. wish I'd put a case away rather than just a few.

Situated northwest of Libourne, this 37-acre vineyard, planted with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, has fashioned a sleepers of the vintage. Produced from 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 exhibits an opulent black raspberry and cherry-scented bouquet offering hints of cedar, vanilla, and roasted herbs. Beautifully-textured, medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin, it can be enjoyed now and over the next 5-7 years. ** SOLD OUT **
