2007 Bordeaux : Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Overpriced (Jul 2010)

Good medium-deep red. Redcurrant, plum, smoke, iron, tobacco and mint on the nuanced nose, plus a peppery note. Juicy, bright and penetrating; on the lean side but nicely delineated, with flavors of plum, leather and lead pencil. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and a lingering note of blackcurrant.
