Château les Grands Chênes Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2012


Château les Grand Chênes is a merlot dominant blend from Bernard Magrez in the Médoc.  I wasn't taken by the 2012 vintage of it.  Its aromatics show evident oak influence, with notes of varnish, cedar and vanilla.  The palate is medium bodied and there's short length on the finish.  While perfectly pleasant, it lacks depth and complexity commensurate with its Australian retail price.

Price: $36
