Tour Saint André Lande de Pomerol, Bourdeaux, France 2007:
Relatively dark with pleasing ruby-red highlights and a slightly amber coloured rim. Intense red fruit bouquet of Cabernet Franc as well as autumnal, tobacco overtones typical of 2007 Merlot. Delicate on the palate with good tannin that is not dry, and just the right amount of acidity on the finish. Plenty of finesse and well-integrated oak on the aftertaste add an extra touch of class. An excellent 2007 from the Pomerol region.
