Château De Macard - Un bordeaux à 10 balles : Le blog de Dave

Son millésime 2009 possède un nez de fruits noirs qui s’accompagne d’un côté épicé. La bouche est encore un peu fraîche, tout en développant une belle densité, avec une finale charnue. Sa structure tannique laisse présager d’un vieillissement harmonieux.

That was the logic behind this tasting dinner, plus it was a great chance for Ben and Mark to show off their buying skills! ...
