International Wine Cellar | 88-91
(nearly 90% merlot) Excellent ruby-red. Black fruits, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose. Quite juicy in the mouth, even a bit youthfully hard-edged, with very fresh blueberry, black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors. Has the energy of a wine from chalky soil. Vibrant finish features firm tannins and good persistence. This has a reasonable 3.4 grams per liter of acidity and a pH of 3.7, according to winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt.

Nothing special, good solid St Emilion but there are much better around for < $$.

Decanted for approx 2 hours. Nice nose of sweet red cherries, vanilla and cassis. Medium body and very soft on the palate with a clipped finish. This will probably get better with a few more years of bottle age but it's very approachable now. Decent QPR at $30.00.
