This was classified as a Fifth Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux classification and if anything it's drifted away from the quality one might expect, and certainly it's been overtaken by a few of the crus bourgeois.

And in this 12 year old wine I didn't find anything to really blow me away. The nose had an appealing undergrowthy warmness with a bit of rotting apples, blackcurrant, wood and some toffee.

The palate was a little disappointing though, as it was pretty thin but hot. There was not a lot of fruit here, but a little sweetness and really this wine struggled to achieve more than a pass.
