Chateau Glanet 2008

The combination of the appellation that is Bordeaux Supérieur and the price bracket that is "sub $30" (in Australia) usually reliably turns up some of my least satisfactory wines.  This wine was better than that, but it was still, if am to be a bit brutal, more cheap Bordeaux than something approaching a (good) cru bourgeois.  I could tell from the moment I smelt it: a sweet, almost candied fragrance of red fruits.  The palate was better with some length and structure.  Here, you probably get what you pay for, but certainly no more.  84 points (6.9/10)

Abv: 13%
Price: around $30
Would I buy it having tasted it?  No
