This Saint-Emilion satellite blend of mostly Merlot and Cab Franc is a decent, if underwhelming, 2010 effort. Aromas of cassis, dark cherry, and pine are appetizing, to be sure, but there's a certain sparseness here, which is simultaneously both elegant and frustrating. It could be intentional restraint, or maybe there just isn't much there to begin with, and what ends up lingering on the palette and through the finish is just red berry sourness. The tannins suggest a bit of further aging, but it's hardly clear this would really get that much better.
