Simple but well priced Bordeaux Sup made in a clean, modern style. It shows, light (mostly old) wood spice character...

A good everyday, fairly simple Bordeaux with little if any wood ageing. Fresh nose of currants, herbs and earth is...

For the price, this is a reasonably good Bordeaux. Medium body, slightly dry on the palate and a short finish make for very relaxed drinking while still keeping it interesting. Wish I bought another few bottles.

Not great, barely good. 4 stars? 89? Please. Larason's review is pretty accurate. It's not a bad wine at all, but a lack of any real fruit on the palate and a bitter, dusty deadness prevail even after beaucoup decanting. A lot of saw dust for a "low wood" wine. ("Generously textured"?). I'm tempted to grab another bottle though, cellar it for 3 years and see whats happens. Not much of a risk at this price. But I just don't think it has the fruit to do much. Ok for the price I guess, and it will certainly cut through a well marbled rib steak. There are better Bordeaux for under $20.
