Dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays nice black berries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins, nice dryness and nice acidity. I bet your never going to see this coming … It’s a nice wine. Not one of the most complex Bordeau’s I’ve had but good none the less. I would give it an -88. Now if you can convince yourself to belly up for an additional $4 go for Chateau Bergeron which was much more complex and tasty. This is a right bank wine from the Fronsac region of Bordeaux.

Sugar Content:2 g/L Sweetness Descriptor: XD – Extra Dry Style:Medium-bodied & Fruity Varietal:Bordeaux Red Description: John Szabo, MS, recommends pairing this stunning value from the incredible 2015 vintage with a juicy piece of meat: ‘A tasty Bordeaux here for the money, a little rustic and firm, but characterful. Tart acids and grippy tannins can be softened with salt, fat and protein at the table.’ (winealign.com, Nov. 29, 2017)
