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.
This is a seriously good claret at a modest price that is drinking well now but can keep for another 10 years or so.
