Great value here. This is fragrant, very typical Bordeaux that’s well rendered for the money. Some elegance,...

Open, flavourful, juicy and modern. Here is an approachable and expressive Medoc that is sure to have wide appeal....

Surprisingly excellent for the money -- not a lot of length but as Sarah D says, very well integrated. I would compare this in value to Masi's Campfiorin: it's been "auto-tuned" somehow--you can't quite put your finger on why you like it, as all its edges have been smoothed out, but it nevertheless, mysteriously, somehow does not disappoint

Re-tasted Mar 2015: While still a decent, authentic left bank Bordeaux, this wine seems a bit less impressive than when I tasted it a year ago. Seems a bit more lean and short finishing. I recommend erring on the side of caution and drinking this sooner rather than later as I don't think that it will improve from here.
