Natalie's Score: 90/100

This wine is full of the promise of the hot 2003 vintage. Loaded with aromas and flavors of ripe berry fruit, pepper, vanilla and licorice, it is full-bodied and long finishing with a superb combination of complexity and balance. A couple of years in the cellar would reward the drinker, but it is definitely drinking well tonight. My note: A good value in this robust wine. It displays aromas of oak and black fruit.

Food pairings: roast leg of lamb, grilled duck breast, game birds.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2004 Château Bréhat is composed of 65% Merlot and undisclosed amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in French Oak for 12 months. It has intense aromas of vanilla, oak, pine, clove, subtle leather and dark chocolate on the nose, yet the palate is quite dried out with notes of dried cherry and cranberry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, aged wine; with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min and watch out for sediment) and a medium to long, smooth finish. Food and sipping friendly; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended for its quality and value - not often do we get such treats at such low cost. Tasted Nov/13.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
