Blackberry and cherry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicious finish. Plenty in the bottle here. Good value. Best after 2010.

Bright medium ruby. Sexy, ripe aromas of plum, red currant, smoke and minerals. Big, plummy and round; unusually rich and ripe for this Cotes de Francs estate. A broad, chocolatey big boy that finishes with substantial but ripe, dusty tannins. Very satisfying.

Shows lovely black currant, floral and black licorice notes. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a tight bead of fruit and mineral throughout. Has a long finish. Best after 2009.

The 2005 Puygueraud is a beautifully textured, dense purple-colored effort. The bouquet offers up aromas of tobacco leaf, black currants, cherries, charcoal, and a hint of background wood. Drink it over the next 5ndash;7 years.

Some obscure terroirs excelled in the bizarre 2003 vintage, and this is the finest effort I have tasted from the Thienpont family’s Cotes de Franc estate. The wine exhibits a black/purple color as well as surprising power and density. The regular 2003 is a rich, concentrated effort with medium body as well as more depth and intensity than expected. It should be drunk over the next 6–8 years.

(Barrel tasting) Good blackberry jam character, with medium to full body, soft tannins and a medium finish. Lovely length to this. Continues to be an excellent value from Bordeaux. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
