"Readers looking for a cru bourgeois made like a classified growth should check out this offering from proprietor Jean Guyon and consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. The 2005 is a beautifully pure, medium to full-bodied effort displaying notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco interwoven with cedar, black currant, white chocolate, and a hint of new saddle leather. Enjoy this charming, seriously endowed Medoc over the next 12-15 years."
