This is, at first, a quite stunning little right-bank Bordeaux, yet further proof that even lower-tiered châteaux could benefit from the remarkable 2010 vintage and offer exceptional value. It opens with an enticing aroma of smoky, briny olive tapenade, soon joined by wet slate / graphite, earth, green and black pepper, and a curious but not unappetizing medicinal element. If there's an obvious problem it's the lack of fruit, but it's there, some blackberry, raspberry, and dark cherry. The flavours thin out quickly, turning bitter, but it's still a solid entry point into 2010 Bordeaux.
