Critical Acclaim

"This has been one of the most reliable wines in Bordeaux over the last 30+ years, and I have enjoyed many vintages of it.

This inky purple-colored wine offers up notes of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and forest floor that seem to have more in common with a classified growth than a petite chateau. Medium-bodied, luscious, and rich, this is a beauty to drink over the next 10 years.
