Mauro Guicheney I 2011

88 points

Duras, France. 13.5%. Organic.

This wine of the Sud-Ouest is a fresh, rich wine with plenty of ripe tannins. Claims to have had 9 months in oak but fortunately must have been old oak.

Surprisingly ripe for the wet cold Summer I experienced in Bordeaux. I guess the sun really did come out in September.

This Merlot dominant wine is sufficiently open to drink now. In fact I’d recommend drinking over the next 3 years.
