There is obvious wood here, a toasty, dry character that shows through the fruit. The wine is young and with the sufficient weight of juicy black currant fruit, it should integrate well to give a solid, chunky wine in two years.
A stalky Bordeaux from a vineyard north of Saint-Emilion. The fruit is austere and lean, with plenty of acidity. There are light tannins, and there is fresh fruit, but the core is missing.
