Nose of super ripe dark fruit and fresh rubber. Flavors of forrest floor, black licorice, steeped black tea, black currant that are like a punch to the face. Heavy oaky notes and tannins that just linger for quite some time. I get a lot of toasted walnut which is something I haven’t noticed in a Bordeaux before. Slight bitterness on the finish that will fade with time. Got a great deal on a case last year and wanted to see what I had gotten myself into. Excited to see how this guy progresses over the years to come. 71% cab 29% merlot

Don't drink too many French wines (just don't know too much about them), but this one was very nice.

5th growth Paulliac and flagship wine of Borie Manoux. 2012 not a good year in Bordeaux. Cassis, licorice, and a bit of smoke on the palate. Not sure it will get much better. Better offerings in an average year. About 90.
