This review is for the 2003 vintage:

A deep brick hue as this Left Bank example begins to show its age; light weight, delicate, and subtle with hints of cinnamon stick and blackberry. The juicy red currant core will keep you coming back for more. Drinking wonderfully now.
Substantial sediment in the bottle – decant before serving. Tasted Feb 2012.

Yet another mediocre no-name Bordeaux.

A good, if typical, nose. Medium body. On the palate: Fruit is there but a bit thin, dark berries, a bit woody, some minerality, not too much tannin.

decent, but why bother...

$25 bucks should buy you more than average.
