(09-2013) This is incontestably, a very good classic Bordeaux. Red current nose. A superior silky, sweet feel to the mouth and good length. An excellent value for money.
(05-1999) A balanced, elegant wine. Dark ruby-colored at the center and a red edge. Lovely aromas of raspberries, spices and cherries follow through to a full-bodied palate with supersilky tannins and a long, caressing finish.
(04-1999) A touch of coffee on the nose; good texture, a refreshing citrus squeeze.
(01-2003) Soft, straightforward, monolithic, and medium-bodied, with some sweet plum and currant fruit, this wine does not follow through on the palate and has an attenuated finish. It has reached full maturity, and is a very unexciting wine characteristic of most of the Cantenac-Browns of the eighties, seventies, and sixties.
