NOSE: plum…cherry…yeast…and — I’m not joking — DEAD MOUSE. Like, right out of the mousetrap. Also some kind of wild brambly berry cordial. Also, raspberry tea.
TASTE: silky cherry - you can really taste the cherry pits. Light-medium weight. A little almond extract. Some herbs I can’t quite peg - like a really mild clove. Weak drip coffee on the finish. Mild mannered (you’ll notice all my adjectives connoting watered-down), but good. No dead animal tastes that I notice. 🤣
To me, this is an 89 or a 90 … I usually err on the lower side of my instincts, but I think a 90 is warranted. — 16 days ago
2018 vintage. At the time owned by the Bouteiller family ( Château Lanessan), but recently all the Bouteiller holdings were bought by Australian giant Treasury. Easy-drinking, charming Haut-Médoc. Terrific value too ( 9.99 euro with a 2,50 euro promotional discount in a supermarket!). — a month ago
Really nice...would definitely seek it out again. — 3 years ago
Lovely tannins. Nose was delightful and rich. Cherry with tannin finish. Excellent and smooth. — 6 years ago
