Wine AdvocateFrom proprietor Pierre Lurton, the administrator of Chateau Cheval Blanc and d'Yquem, this Bordeaux from humble origins displays sweet red and black currant fruits, some dusty, earthy notes, good freshness, acidity and a medium-bodied, satisfying, consumer-friendly appeal. As the French call such wines, it is a vin gourmand, meaning for uncritical drinking.
