Just arrived, and this wine is at least 90 points in Clyde's book! According to Robert Parker: "One of my favorite inexpensive offerings from the Blaye region, this deep ruby/purple-colored 2005 reveals relatively big tannin for its style along with plenty of blackberry and earthy fruit, and impressive body, density, glycerin, and alcohol (14% naturally). It should age easily for 4-6 years." (04/06) K&L's barrel tasting notes - 90% merlot, 5% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc. Toasty oak aromas. Ripe blackberries. Deep color-blackish. Fairly extracted, but in good balance. Sweet core of fruit.* The favorable exchange rate makes this a sure-winner for the cellar. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer)

This Merlot-dominated wine provides lots of ripe black fruit aromas and even more richness on the palate with oak flavors in the background. This richness is balanced with good acidity, nice astringency and a good tannic backbone. A nice Right Bank wine for only $20.
