Although this is highly rated and not inexpensive, this continues to be one of the most under rated wines from Bordeaux for my tastes. It is classic left bank and affordable and will age quite well. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. On the nose, this is dusty with cigar box, cassis and cherries. Full bodied. A nice juicy/glycerin mouthfeel. Very plush on the mid-palate and then a long finish. Lots of cassis and black cherry fruit with underlying clean earthiness. This should continue to improve for five to ten more years and srink for another ten to fifteen after that. It will go well with roasts or grilled foods.
