In a nutshell:
A very attractive, plump and juicy Claret from the left bank village of Saint Julien.
Bruno Borie continues to produce a real class acts from this very reliable château. This is a wine with a deep and complex nose of dark fruits, currants, liquorice and herby notes; a medium-full body, with fine, ripe, and silky tannins with great structure and balance. Towards the end there are notes of sweet tobacco on the long and lingering finish.
When to drink:
This is a seriously good claret at a modest price that is drinking well now but can keep for another 10 years or so.
