Of course we expect wines of a higher pedigree appellations to be of a certain quality, but once on a while, we come across a bottle labeled simply as “Médoc”, and the wine “sings”. That is very much the case here. It is ready to be enjoyed now. The color is starting to show that beautiful garnet tone. The palate is woodsy, with lots of fruity, cassis and plums and a very intriguing note of meat bouillon/leather, and olives. I would still advise to decant it to soften its grippy but perfectly ripened tannins. So much complexity for its modest price, indeed a nice surprise.
