Chateau Haut Madrac 2003

I bought this wine a few years ago now.  It presented like a classic left-bank Bordeaux.  A blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot, it showed crushed and juicy bramble fruits and cedar (with a touch of anise) on the nose.  On the palate, the wine had medium acidity, white pepper, shortish length and fairly dry tannins, but all in balance.  "Balanced" is probably the adjective that best sums up this wine.  A well priced Bordeaux that is pleasant drinking.  85 points.

Abv: 12.5%
Price: mid $20s
