Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

Medium-deep red. Roasted currant, leather and tobacco on the expressive nose. Smooth and silky on the palate, with noteworthy concentration and a lovely core of sweetness supported by firm structure. The berry, mineral and lead pencil flavors are generous and expressive. In the hot, dry summer of 2003, this chateau obviously benefited from the substantial clay content of its soil. This was bottled in March.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
