WOWEE! This tastes like real Bordeaux for ten bucks! When I say "real" Bordeaux, I mean classically-structured claret rather than the juicy, overripe merlot run-off that we sometimes taste in this price point. Balanced between fruit and earth with a restrained, "British-style" profile (hence the 95 point Decanter score), the Mazieres even has finely-developed tannins, which means you could probably age a case of this in the cellar for a few years and watch it soften even further. If you're looking for a new house wine, this is a fantastic bistro-style option. It reminds me of nights in Paris, drinking something red, delicious, and inexpensive, but having no recollection of what it was. All I usually remember of those experiences is that that the wines taste way better than the $10 options we have back home. Now we actually have our hands on something that good! Rejoice!
