Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 89

Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The nose is rather disjointed at the moment with sulky dark fruits, sous-bois, dark cherries and boysenberry tinged with iodine. The palate has a sharp and slightly tinny entry with crisp acidity and attractive pure raspberry coulis and strawberry towards the long finish. This is a decent if rather foursquare Carruades just compromised by the aromatics. Tasted January 2011. [Neal Martin, 01/01/2011]

Vinous – 87

Medium red-ruby. Currant, cherry and licorice aromas complicated by cooler notes of tobacco leaf, menthol and fresh herbs. The palate offers limited sweetness, with the distinctly green element giving the wine a slightly tart impression. Offers only modest density and length, but I liked its almost sangiovese-like floral quality. [Stephen Tanzer, 07/01/2010]

JancisRobinson.com – 16.0

Mid ruby. Quite a sludgy colour. Lots of acidity evident from the first sniff. Very light. Well polished with some reasonably firm tannins underneath. Mid weight of fruit. Lightly chewy on the end. Rather astringent finish. A bit dull and lacking life but by no means one of the softest northern Médocs. [21/04/2008]

Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018
