OK... So that's a cheap Frenchy that I REALLY like. Very nice, inky black, bold, big tannins. Limestone.

Blind tasting just now:
Rhys Bearwallow 2009
2008 Littorai Cerise vineyard
Anthill Farm Abbey Harris - 2008?
2007 Peay scallop shelf

Are you getting smoke from the 2008s?

Yes it's a good one and very good for that price range.

Have you tried the Viña yet?

And thanks for mentioning Madiran. As I point out about- will drink more.

Lorgeril L'Orangeraie Rose last night. Terrible, maybe I got a bad bottle.

The Chasse Spleen is surprisingly youthful and has a wonderful nose and bright red cherry on the palate. Very unexpected. Should be great with rib steak later this evening. Haven't tried the 95 Neyers yet, it was rumored to be from declassified Araujo Eisele fruit.
