2005 Château Vrai Canon Bouché  (Canon-Fronsac) 90

From an assemblage of 90% Merlot with close to 10% Cabernet Franc, along with a dollop of Malbec, this rich, opulent, sweet, round wine delivers a boat load of licorice, plums, black cherries, espresso and spicy scents. This is already offering a lot of pleasure. For consumers thinking all Bordeaux is expensive, at $25, this is a good Bordeaux wine that will do well in blind tastings against much more expensive wines. 90 Points
