Natalie's Score: 91/100

Black, brooding and absolutely phenomenal for the price, especially for Bordeaux. Loaded with toasty oak and tar and smoke. Full-bodied and layered. Good finish. Decant 2 hours and pair with a big, juicy steak. Scrumptious Seafood Wine

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

What a great wine at a great price. The medium to full bodied Bordeaux which is Merlot heavy is full of rich flavors. Jammy fruits with a hint of vanilla, this affordable delicious wine was one of the gems I discovered while studying French wine. Great with a BBQ.
Black colour with a rich and complex nose, with lots of black fruit jam, toast, mineral and smoke. Mouthfilling and rich with beautiful aroma replays, round, fat tannins and great balance. A beautiful, charming and powerful Bourg. Score: 5 (out of 5) Source: Guide Hubert, 2012
