Bold, rotund and a bit oaky on the nose and palate, this wine could use a year or two in the cellar to refine its sweet, soft, ripe, fruity sensation.

Oak, smoke, red and black fruits with hints of fennel, the medium bodied wine offers soft textures and should be enjoyable on release. The chateau has been increasing the percentage of Cabernet Franc to the blend which adds depth and structure. 86-88 Pts

The licorice, cocoa, jammy black cherries, round textures, forward style and fair price make this a nice example of a Bordeaux value wine that is already drinking well. It's not going to make it to old age, I'd drink it over the next 5 years to preserve its fruit.
