- Closure: Cork
Another big name Bordeaux wine from the 2007 vintage at attractive prices (less than their original 2007 en-primeur pricing and well below our normal cost price). Drink whilst you wait for your 2009 and 2010 wines to mature.Robert Parker sums up what most described as a difficult vintage: As a wine critic, my first and foremost responsibility is to report on the quality of the wines, and there were some very fine efforts produced in 2007. The vintage can be best summarized by the following tasting note, which basically characterizes the finest wines of 2007. "The finest 2007s tend to be dark ruby colored with purple highlights, sweet, ripe berry fruit similar to black cherries and black currants, medium body, silky tannins, low acidity, and pure, round, charming personalities with good equilibrium. By and large, the wines lack density, structure, and serious long term aging potential. Most will be drinkable as soon as they are bottled (actually, many are so precocious, they could have been gulped down as barrel samples), and should age surprisingly well for 10 to 15 years. Truthfully, most consumers will probably love the style of the vintage’s top wines because they are so flattering, seductive, and fruit forward." - Robert Parker
This muscular, highly-extracted, structured 2007 reveals a boatload of tannin (unusual for this vintage). The wine’s dark ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, new saddle leather, and forest floor offered in a structured, backward, almost unapproachable format. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and if the tannins resolve themselves, it will merit a higher score. It should last for 12-20 years.
Drink 2012 - 2032.
