Chateau L’Escadre ‘Major’ 2004

84+ points

Premières Côtes De Blaye, France. 13.5%

Modern “reserve’ style wine, i.e. dark ripe with a lot of oak. A bit forced. Still it isn’t too extracted and the 2004 vintage has a good acid balance. Not exactly fun to drink now, but then it is a baby. Potentially very good value. Wait until 2010 if you can. How long will it last after that, I don’t know ?
