Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 13%
A 5th growth from the Haut-Medoc. A new name to me. Old fashioned yet well made – what I mean is that this isn’t souped up at all. No signs of modern fruit sweetness here. Strong slightly hard green flavours but not under-ripe. Flavour wise this reminds me of the 1996 vintage in general and I’ve just bought some Cantemerle 96 so the comparison will be interesting.
This 2004 should be a long distance runner. From 2015.
