Château Les Grands Chênes, Médoc
2009
Dark, suggestively high-toned aromas of jam, plum and currant. Balanced and lively palate with a broad sweep of currant and berry notes and a welcoming frame. A fairly lean style with plenty of spice and zest thanks to good acidity. 16.5 (88)
Price £15–£19 Albany Vintners, En Primeur, Fine & Rare, Nickolls & Perks
