Chateau Vieil Orme Bordeaux 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

40% Merlot 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon Fairly fruity on the nose with hints of black currants and plums layered over some smoky, sweet oak and vanilla aromas with hints of herbs emerging with time. On entry this is bright, and fresh with lovely balance and a superbly friendly mouthfeel. A classic glass of Bordeaux, slightly austere, a bit firm, just under medium bodied with crisp black berry and red currant flavors. The finish is tight, and moderately long, showing both the youthfulness of the wine and its potential for positive development. This is a great value. 87pts
