EFW review :
This wine has been a subject of controversy in the past for having TCA, however the bottles that were not affected have been splendid. Due to this issue the Chateau recalled all the bottles from their negociants in 2011, checked the wines, re-corked the wines with a special machine, and refilled them with good bottles from the same vintage. The resulting wine is outstanding. The bouquet is mature with aromas of dusty red cherry, mineral, earth, leather, and touch of animal. On the palate there is amazing balance and elegance with red berry fruit, tar, forest floor, and graphite; finishing with resolved tannins. A gorgeous bottle of mature claret that drinks great now and came straight from the Chateau.
