This is a lovely and classical expression of Médoc. Lightly coloured (for cabernet), it has aromatics that are restrained and savoury, and remind of red currants, cherry and cedar. The palate has firm tannins and an earthy, savoury finish. This is an enjoyable wine that can be approached now, but will also benefit from short cellaring. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $30. Website: www.medoc-chandelliere.com.
