Mature now, like a lot of 2007s this is quite soft to begin, a nose of hedgerow fruit and loamy 'sous-bois', a gentle and broad entry, velvety dry feel, then it seems to pick up speed as the fruit finds its expression to finish well on a good Saint Julien balance of fresh dryness.

If you're nervous about spending money on what friends might deem to be the 'wrong' château but want a lovely claret in the bag for winter, this is a fantastic flavoursome option that's in perfect drinking condition right now. Well-integrated smokiness to the tannins and generous in its earthy fruit. Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Ulysse Cazabonne: Full Wine List and Profile
Ulysse Cazabonne is a Bordeaux merchant based in Margaux, with close links to many top Châteaux. It is owned by Chanel, which also owns Château Rauzan Ségla and Château Canon. Director John Kolasa was previously régisseur of Château Latour. Using these connections Ulysse Cazabonne has been able to source wines from famous estates that have not made the cut into the 'grand vin' for whatever reason - young vines or parcels that in these years have not been quite as successful, but which nevertheless benefit from the considerable expertise available in these top properties. We were frankly surprised (and delighted) by just how true the back-label claim proved to be for all these characterful clarets:"Vinified by a famous estate of the region, this wine is showing the typicity of its terroir".
