A good sort: Chateau Saint-Go 2007
Aromatically, the Chateau Saint-Go 2007 has pronounced notes of blackberries, supplemented by the scent of sweet cloves, dark plum skins and dark cherries, and is generally rather opulent in expression. On the palate, the wine is dry, with medium acid, fine grained tannins and medium to long length. Blackberries abound, and the finish is balanced. I found myself drinking this wine rather effortlessly, enjoying its nuances of length, grip and blackberry flavours. I would suggest that it is fully developed and provides excellent drinking right now. Good
