It seems that about once a year we get a great Bordeaux wine for a decent price. They usually come from an outlying region, such as Lalande de Pomerol or (this time) Fronsac. Smooth with a nice, almost chocolate finish, it should have wide appeal and is ready now. I bought eight of them, so maybe I will find out how they age.

excellent Bordeaux for the price. Big and bold. It come out at 15% alcohol, but doesn't taste hot.
