Bordeaux Superieur. 60/40 Merlot Cabernet. 13%
8 years old and it’s still oaky with raspy tannins. Too extracted, no charm. This Chateau is trying too hard with green harvesting and long macerations – which they boast of on the back label!
Certainly a Bordeaux Superieur that could be a superstar of its appelation if only they would aim for finesse rather than brute concentration.
