This is a bomb of a bordeaux. Although young, it is extremely drinkable now, but it will definitely improve over 3-5 years. Lots of fruit, nice balance with minerals and tartness. Great wine and a great value! Buy by the case if you can! I got three bottles, but now wish I'd bought more.

This little chateau in Bourg was a surprise purchase, but the quality was also a surprise - surprising good, in fact - despite the off-vintage (2007) and bargain-basement price. Stewed cranberry, acidic red huckleberry, wet earth, fresh mushroom - all blend to greet the nostrils in relative harmony. Good grip for a 2007; there is plenty of acerbic tannin to hold a bit longer - though this stem-like flavor is an acquired taste for most. Good value at the price (the exact dollar figure will be my little secret).

A sleeper of the vintage, this intriguing blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc reveals a deep ruby purple color, serious concentration, a full-bodied, powerful palate (13.6% natural alcohol), loads of tannin, and fabulous stuffing as well as richness. It should handsomely repay 15 or more years of cellaring.

JS: There's loads of new wood, but also plenty of ripe fruit and mineral undertones on the nose. Medium-to-full-bodied, with silky tannins and a vanilla and fruit aftertaste. Best after 2010. 1,330 cases made.
