Insanely young and it showed.. After 24 hours decanting it softened and opened up. Touch of gravel and raisin on the nose, with thick black cherry on the palate in a classic big fronsac body. Gripping acidity.

Cherries, leather. Rich tannins. Needs plenty of air. Open early (2 hours?). Serve with something that can stand up to it.

An 18th century chateau, overlooking the Isle valley, facing Pomerol and the Saint-Emilion limestone hillsides, belonged to the same family for three centuries took over by Michel Rullier in 1955, and his daughter Brigitte took the helm in 2002. Dark red with wide rang of berry aromas and smoky scents. On the palate plum and cherry with cacao, tobacco and smoky oak with herb spice on a solid frame. Firm tannins lead to a lingering finish ending with chalky mineral notes. Nice value.

Deliciously mellow aroma and strong woody taste. This is definitely my type of wine.

Enjoyed this immensely with pizza. Good presence of dark fruit without it being so overpowering. The Franc really balances it well. Hint of mothballs. Slightly too acidic. It's so close to a perfect silkiness.

Dark ruby color and full bodied, a powerful dark brooding wine. Lots of dark bramble fruit, leather notes and strong tannins, with pepper notes on a long finish. Great value.
