    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 101654

    Winemaker's Notes:

    12 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Full body, excellent ripeness, and a spicy, long finish. Very attractive aromas of crushed berries, chocolate and light vanilla compliment the well integrated tannins, and long caressing finish. Blend: 70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Readers looking for a cru bourgeois made like a classified growth should check out this offering from proprietor Jean Guyon and consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. The 2005 is a beautifully pure, medium to full-bodied effort displaying notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco interwoven with cedar, black currant, white chocolate, and a hint of new saddle leather. Enjoy this charming, seriously endowed Medoc over the next 12-15 years.

    A 90 RP rating is generally a good sign, although perhaps this one suffers from rating inflation. Still a good buy.

    Wine turned bad, bought 5 Bordeaux from wine.com, 3 were bad, moldy, musty taste of wet cardboard... I decanted the wine for a whole day, didn't help too much.
