This is a wine with good, dense and red fruit, a touch of wood and a firm structure. There is a sense of elegance backed up by some weight. The aftertaste brings in spice and balancing acidity.
Benefiting from the ripe 2009 fruit, this shows the attractive character of many value Bordeaux wines in this year. It has red plum fruits, touched with raisins along with toast, acidity and a balance of tannins.
Bright red fruits give this wine a fresh, vivid character. It has dry fruit tannins, firmly mineral. The berry fruits are what drive this wine forward, and promise a good partnership with food.
