Scores and tasting notes
This St.-Emilion estate that has long been in the throes of mediocrity produced a satisfying wine in 1982. Medium ruby, with an attractive bouquet of vanillin oakiness and ripe, herb-scented, berry fruit, this medium-bodied wine has a forward, precocious, rich, supple fruitiness that caresses the palate. It is fully mature. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/89.
