Réserve de la Comtesse (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Reserve de Comtesse has a pleasant but austere bouquet with dusky black tobacco-infused fruit all with fine definition and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a satisfying Merlot component neatly offsetting the ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. Good body here, pleasing length with a dash of spice on the finish. Tasted January 2014.
