A classic Bordeaux Grand Cru at perfect drinking maturity!

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. This has a beautiful, lifted nose with stunning definition and purity, a lot of vanillary new oak, very modern in style, but quite sensuous and voluptuous. Cassis, blueberry jam and a touch of orange sorbet. The palate is rounded on the entry, touches of roasted herbs inflected the succulent, gamey black fruit with racy acidity on the elegant, harmonious finish. Very polished. This is a sumptuous, gorgeous Saint Emilion that is surpassing my initial optimism. Tasted January 2010.
