Anytime I see a Bordeaux that is rated well I jump at it. This one is dark in color with a mild nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely red berries to match the nose. On the finish the wine displays some lovely velvety tannins. The wine is medium in length with some acidity and alcohol coming through. It’s a lovely smooth Bordeaux. I would give it an 89 or so!
