Chateau Chevalier de la Garde 2004

This is totally different from the Medoc wine of Lalande D'Auvion, coming as it does from Fronsac on the other side of the Gironde and being 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and of course just 12 months old. It's lighter fresher with just subtle hints of oak and vanilla, some pepper, leather and plums on the palate - it was again bought on a very decent buy one get one free offer and goes down very easily indeed. 16/20
